Get Ready to Spring Forward: Daylight Saving Time Begins on March 10!

March 6, 2024

As the winter chill begins to fade away, a harbinger of brighter evenings is on the horizon. Daylight Saving Time is set to commence on Sunday, March 10, at 2:00 AM local time, signaling the eagerly awaited shift to longer days and later sunsets.

Come Sunday, clocks will spring forward by one hour, officially ushering in the season of extended daylight. While the adjustment may initially cost us an hour of precious sleep, the payoff is well worth it for those yearning for more sunlight in the evenings.

The newly adjusted time will gift Laurens County residents with a sunset at 7:33 pm that very Sunday evening. This means more daylight hours to enjoy outdoor activities, evening strolls, and a general boost in mood as winter makes way for the rejuvenating spirit of spring.

Daylight Saving Time, a practice observed in many regions globally, is embraced to make better use of natural daylight and conserve energy. As we set our clocks forward, we can look forward to a shift in the daily rhythm, with longer evenings becoming the norm.

So, who else is ready to bid farewell to the early darkness of winter and welcome the longer, sun-kissed days ahead? As the hands of time move forward, let’s embrace the changing seasons and make the most of the extended daylight that Daylight Saving Time brings.
