Fall back. A slow setting sun in Castle Hill, Maine on November 5, 2023.

On Sunday, November 5, the end of daylight savings arrived. The clocks were set back by one hour. Many states in the United States got an extra hour of sleep. “I like the sleep but it always makes the day drag on forever and ever and ever,” Carlee Wood ’25 said. “Also when we have to spring ahead, we lose that hour of sleep.”

“Most people like the extra hour of sleep in the winter when you are all warm and cozy in your bed, but it also means that the sun will set sooner and it will get darker a whole lot sooner,” Kelsie Dunleavy said. With the sun setting earlier and the time changing more people find it harder to fall asleep.
