Daylight Savings Time Ends & Makes Sunset Earlier


Sunday at two a.m., the USA and some other nations changed their clocks to go back to Standard Time and off of Daylight Savings Time:

It’s that time of year again.

The “fall back” day is coming to clocks across the nation. Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4…
Remember, you’ll “fall back” and set your clocks back one hour. Many electronic devices automatically adjust when Daylight Savings Time begins or ends.

Because of that, sunset will be over an hour earlier this Friday.

Those of us who observe the weekly Sabbath from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday may wish to remember that.  In my own case, we will have to close our office earlier than normal for the next several months on Fridays.

This will affect not only those in the Churches of God, but others who keep the seventh-day Sabbath such as observant Jews and Seventh-day Adventists.
