Granted, everyone is still thinking about Halloween. However, there’s another event going on this weekend that we need to remember. I’m talking about the end of Daylight Saving Time on Sunday.

That’s right – at 2:00 a.m. Sunday, everywhere in the United States (except Arizona and Hawaii) will fall back one hour. An easy suggestion to follow would be to change the clocks Saturday night before going to bed.

Experts also recommend a checklist of home-maintenance chores in addition to changing the clocks. The checklist includes changing the batteries in all smoke alarms (if you don’t have a smoke alarm, now would be a good time to get one).

Another item for the checklist is checking and replacing light bulbs. With the days getting shorter means longer periods of evening darkness, and checking those light bulbs can help with safety.

For other safety tips, Lowe’s Home Improvement has several suggestions listed on their website.

So, after you finish you Halloween celebrations this weekend, remember the end of Daylight Saving Time is this Sunday morning, and enjoy that extra hour of sleep Saturday night.
