Prepare to lose an hour of sleep this weekend, when you spring forward, because daylight saving time begins at 2:00 a.m. this Sunday, March 9th. 

Daylight Saving time is a practice that was initially intended to benefit society and the economy by allowing for more daylight hours in the evening after the end of the work day.

In the US, Canada and Mexico we operate on daylight saving time from the second Sunday in March through the first Sunday in November.
