Everything you need to know about the clocks changing in 2022

Written by sidhanta

Murmuring 'spring forward, fall back' to yourself as you try to remember which way to turn the dial tends to be the extent of the average person's knowledge of the biannual clock change.

But why do we frantically try to remember to change our clocks twice a year anyway? Does it happen worldwide? And who came up with this idea in the first place?

Under EU law, the clocks in all member states go back an hour on the last Sunday in October and go forward on the last Sunday of March.

In the US (bar the states of Arizona and Hawaii) and Canada, DST starts at 2 am on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday in November, while in Australia

The clocks change in order to make the best use of the natural light as the earth orbits the sun, changing its exposure.

In winter, when it's naturally darker, time goes back by an hour, which means an extra hour wrapped up in bed. 

 However, in summer, we enjoy the championed 'grand stretch in the evenings', as the clocks going forward an hour makes for longer evenings.
