Your Halloween Hangover Will Start An Hour Earlier

Speaking of running out the clock (see: every post in the last three hours), your friends at The Awl would like to take a moment to remind you that Sunday marks the end of Daylight Savings Time. Set your clocks back an hour. Or forward an hour? I can never remember which is which. Spring… awakening? Spring forward? Lemme go hit up Google and get back to you.

UPDATE: Yeah, it's definitely back. Mmm, more cold and dark for everyone!

Happy LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR, tired parents of small children!

Alex, it doesn't really mean the hangover starts earlier. It's that you get an extra hour to enjoy it.

Yes, it's like bars close at 5am.

It's an extra hour I'll be sleeping in the car ride back from New England.

Finally! Now it will be dark every night when I leave the office as opposed to most nights when I leave.

Thank God!! I don't know about anyone else, but my ass has been dragging lately. I need that extra hour.

Oh shit wait. I have Comcast coming tomorrow. Whaddya wanna bet they're gonna show up at the wrong time?

Your Saturday is a Sunday?

I have been forgetting all day that Halloween is tomorrow. I'm going to a fancy dress party tonight, you see, so in my head, that's Halloween.

Unless they're scheduled for Sunday, you're fine. It's bedtime Saturday night when we repeat the hour. And whatevs–they'd be early for your appointment if they got it wrong, not late.

DID YOU KNOW I LOVE THE END OF DAYLIGHT SAVINGS EVERYONE

Daylight Savings should be abolished. You want long summer evenings, off to Baffin Island with you.

Me too. It's so cozy, when it gets all dark at 5.

As long as you have a warm flat to go home to!

The odds were stacked against you before Daylite Savings Time.
