Don’t forget to roll your clocks forward this weekend.

At 2 a.m. Sunday, March 11, we’ll spring forward for Daylight Saving Time. Although we’ll lose an hour of the day, the good news is that sunset will be an hour later.

Since the federal government doesn’t require U.S. states or territories to observe daylight saving time, not everyone will have to change their clocks on Sunday. Residents in Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are off the hook.

For the rest of us, Daylight Saving Time runs through Nov. 4.

According to TimeandDate.com, about 75 countries and territories around the world have at least one location that observes DST. At least 164 don’t observe the change at all.
