Going back in time

YOU WON’T want to forget to turn the clocks back one hour this weekend or you’ll end up early to everything afterward.

YOU WON’T want to forget to turn the clocks back one hour this weekend or you’ll end up early to everything afterward.

Turn back the clocks and watches one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday Nov. 3 to return to standard time.

It has been said that the time change is early Sunday morning instead of on a weekday so people aren’t late, or early, for work.

Instead, they can be an hour early, or late, for church.

In different countries, people view time in different ways.

For example, in Germany, punctuality is very important – being late for an appointment is the height of rudeness and may even earn you a rebuke from your host. However, in Brazil, time is often ignored and people sometimes run hours late for meetings, doctor appointments and even college classes.
