For most of the country, Daylight Saving Time ends this year at 2 a.m. Sunday, November 4. This means most of us will move our clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

"Whoa," you might be saying. "Hold it, hold it. Back up. You lost me."

Ha ha. We know Daylight Saving Time can be confusing. That's why we developed this chart. Consult it Saturday night before you "hit the hay" and you can't go wrong.
