Daylight Saving Time began on Sunday March 9, 2014 (set clocks forward 1 hour). It ends Sunday November 2, 2014 (set clocks back 1 hour).
Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of advancing clocks so that there is more daylight in the afternoon hours. It is not observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Arizona.

Clocks are set back one hour so as to gain one hour that was lost when the clocks were set one hour ahead during winter. This is used to help people remember the effects of Daylight Saving Time on their clocks. The system was established during World War I so as to save energy.
