Daylight Saving Time starts Sunday at 2 a.m., so make sure to push clocks an  hour ahead Saturday night.

The idea of daylight saving was first thought of by Benjamin Franklin in 1784.

Supporters  say the time change helps reduce electricity usage because daylight hours are extended.

Critics say it can disrupt sleeping patterns and result in overall drowsiness.

Daylight Saving Time ends Nov. 5.
