Daylight Saving Time, or DST, begins on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November. In March, clocks are moved forward one hour from 2am standard time to 3am DST, and in November, clocks are moved back one hour from 2am DST to 1am standard time. In 2013, DST begins on Sunday, March 10.
Supporters of DST say that it saves energy, reduces traffic accidents, reduces crime, and encourages outdoor activity in the evening, so it's good for physical and psychological health.
Opponents of DST say that actual energy savings are inconclusive, it disrupts morning activities, and changing clocks twice a year is economically and socially disruptive. They think these negative effects cancel out any benefit to observing DST.
