Winter is coming… and people are being reminded that the clocks will go back by one hour this Sunday morning.
So at 2am, rewind your clock back to 1am and enjoy the extra hour in bed!
This is great news if you’re having a few pints to celebrate the Bank Holiday weekend, or if you simply want to enjoy a lie in this Sunday morning.
Although most laptops and phones automatically change the time for you, it’s worth double checking, otherwise your alarm may ring earlier than needs be!
A simple way to remember which ways the clocks go back is the phrase “Spring forward, fall back”.
New Zealander George Hudson from New Zealand first proposed the idea of daylight saving in 1895, with it being implemented in The German Empire and Austria-Hungary in 1916. Many countries have used it at various times since then, particularly since the energy crisis of the 1970s.
Hudson wanted people to take advantage of the bright summer mornings, and proposed a clock change in a bid to get people out of bed earlier!
