Daylight Saving Time: A Handy Guide

This Sunday morning at 2 a.m., Daylight Saving Time begins. This means that all clocks that don't automatically switch over will have to be manually moved ahead one hour. Got it? We have compiled a handy list of critical "Do's" and "Don't's" to help you get through this potentially confusing time.


  • Set your clocks ahead one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday morning


  • Go crazy with the salt; sodium is a killer
  • Call your stepfather "dad" immediately; make him earn it with trips to the ballpark, Christmas presents, etc...
  • Buy DVDs while vacationing overseas; they probably won't work on your player
  • Dismiss Quadrophenia; it still holds up today
  • Return to your high school and expect all your old teachers to remember you; they've taught a lot of kids
  • Go overboard with anniversary gifts; a handmade card and intimate dinner is more than enough to show you care
  • Talk on your cell phone while ordering at Chipotle; it's confusing for everyone
  • Claim to know everything about Cirque du Soleil just because you saw one show in Vegas
  • Look your dog in the eye while administering her/him ear medication
  • Set a series recording for a show on your DVR before talking to your roommates about it
