In an absolutely stunning and unprecedented turn of events, Daylight Saving Time 2017 shook the nation to its core Sunday morning.
As a result, rattled citizens across this great country are taking to their computers, phones and friends to ask the all-important question:
“What Time Is It?”
Seriously. This is an actual thing going on.
The trending topics on Google at this moment on the 12th day of March include “Daylight Savings Time,” “What Time is It?” and “Local Time.”
It’s chaos out there in America, people.
Earlier this morning, for the first time since 2016, U.S. residents (Arizona, Hawaii and P.R. excluded … lucky) were hit with a jarring reality:
The need to set their clocks forward.
By one hour. No more, no less.
Jaws? Hitting the ground.
Fear not, though. Breathe. We’ve got this, people. We got it. If we band together, we can not only come to grips with this, but thrive.
THG has provided a helpful Daylight Saving Time 2017 visual aid to assist you and keep you on an even emotional keel today.
See above. You’re welcome.
While the time change costs us an hour of sleep, evenings will be noticeably brighter, a reminder that spring is just around the corner.
The sun will set around 7 p.m. or later in most of the U.S., meaning no more commuting home in the dark and more hours to be outside.
Cities on the western edge of time zones will enjoy the latest sunsets, as they always do, but must also endure the darkest mornings.
One of the biggest arguments against Daylight Saving Time is the reduction in light in the mornings, especially with kids going to school.
Of course, the Earth is still moving in the right direction, and the sun will continue to rise earlier and earlier for the next three months.
The arrival of spring means that daylight is now increasing at its most rapid pace of the year, so the mornings won’t be dark for long.
By mid-April, sunrise will have “caught up” to where it was before DST, so you’ll have that extra hour of evening light and then some.
If you don’t like it? Well, you’re probably giving this way too much thought, but we have some reassuring news for you just the same.
Just wait 7.75 months and ride this thing on out. Come November 5, you can go back to Standard Time and pretend this never happened.
Let us just say that it’s about time, people. Are we right?
See what we did there?! Literally and figuratively? Eh?
Terrible puns notwithstanding, it’s cause for celebration across the nation because Daylight Saving Time commences this weekend.
For those beaten down by winter and desperate for this long, dark period of our lives to end, the event comes not a moment too soon.
Daylight Saving Time is harbinger of seasons to come, a cause for springing ahead (so to speak) with life and the renewal of the spirit.
It’s also inherently confounding for a lot of people somehow.
Fortunately, THG is here to break it all down and help you through a monumentally complex event that we haven’t seen the likes of since 2016.
Here are 17 helpful tips for Daylight Savings Time 2017:
1. It begins officially tomorrow: Sunday, March 12 at 2 a.m.
2. Time “springs” forward one hour (see above infographic).
3. Set your clocks ahead before you go to bed tonight. Done.
4. Or stay up until 2 a.m., put ‘em at 3, then hit the sack. BAM.
5. Your iPhone should be automated, so don’t even WORRY.
6. Your microwave probably isn’t, though, so take note of that.
7. At least your microwave can’t be hacked by the CIA. #Win.
8. Yes, this means losing an hour of sleep Sunday morning.
9. Especially with little kids on a nap schedule. Gonna be rough.
10. BUT you get an extra hour of sun in the evening. Tight.
11. The concept of DST dates all the way back to 1895.
12. It was the brainchild of one Ben Franklin. Who knew?!
13. It was recently extended a decade ago to save energy.
14. Daylight Saving Time 2017 ends Sunday, November 5, at which point you’ll be “falling” back to the original time, as depicted below:
15. Changing the clock in your car could take you awhile, especially if you have an older model, because that s–t is a legit pain in the a–.
16. Seriously. A post-it note affixed to the dashboard reminding you that it’s hour slow until 11/5 may be easier. It’s only 7.75 months.
17. Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico peeps: Disregard 1-16.
There you go: 17 easy steps to prep you for #DST17 so that you we can not only get through this, but spring into March and beyond.

By one hour exactly.
Just breathe, people.
Everybody just calm the f–k down.

A few moments ago, your life was in shambles. Now you’re fully in control of things again. Don’t ever say we didn’t do anything for you.
Daylight Saving Time. It’s finally here, people.
Almost. In just a few short hours, it will be, and when that time comes, we will in fact save daylight, turning the clocks back FOR GOOD.
Or at least until March 12, 2017 arrives.
Let’s break it all down real quick here: Sunday morning (November 6), Americans will come together and turn their clocks back.
The savings of time? One … entire … hour.
For all you Americans looking forward to a long, dark winter and the sun setting at freaking 4:00 on the east coast, it’s a thing of beauty.
Which is virtually no one ever. But whatever.
Hey, at least you get an extra hour of sleep!
Well, unless you have kids who have no idea what the f–k is going on and just get up after X hours of sleep like they otherwise would.
Okay, scratch that too. This sucks!
Anyway, Daylight Saving Time remains inherently confusing for some people for some reason, which is why is THG is here to assist.
See helpful graphics above. BAM!!
If that’s still not sufficient, here’s a more detailed rundown of Daylight Saving Time 2016, and what you can expect next year, to boot:
- Daylight Saving Time began on Sunday, March 13 at 2 a.m.
- Time “springs” forward in the spring (how appropriate, as shown in the diagram below) and “falls” back by one hour (above, also fitting).
- TIP: Set your clocks ahead an hour before you go to bed.
- OR stay up until 2 a.m., turn the clocks to 1 a.m., then sleep.
- iPhones will do this automatically. Microwaves? Not so much.
- If you can’t figure out how to change the effing clock in your car, don’t worry. Make a mental (or Post-It) note that it’s fast until 3/12/16.
- It’ll start getting dark at f–king 4:30, as we said before. S–t.
- The concept of Daylight Saving Time dates all the way back to 1895, when the U.S. economy was much more agriculturally-based.
- In recent years, the duration of DST was extended to save energy nationwide. Translation: At least it’s not October-April?
- Standard Time is a misnomer, as it’s a shorter chunk of the year.
- In 2017, Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 12 (above).
- Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico residents: Disregard.
There you go, people. After processing all of this vitally insightful and crucial information, you can consider yourselves officially prepared.
