November 6 is officially the greatest day of the year because as Daylight Saving Time ends, we actually gain an hour — and who doesn’t need more time? Yes, the days are getting shorter and you’re probably waking up in darkness (and making your commute in it as well) — but we gain an hour of sleep on Saturday night as Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6 and Standard Time begins…
When do we change our clocks?
Most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.
In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1:00 a.m. Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It begins the last Sunday in March and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment.

|Why do we change our clocks?
There are several reasons for why we change our clocks twice a year, and why we fall back and spring forward. The following is a list of just some of the primary reasons for changing our clocks on a standard basis:

ATTENTION: section 179 tax deduction (news alert – section179.org)
According to Section 179 of The Tax Relief… 2010 Act, if a print shop purchases a wide format printer like the Legend 72HUV, they can deduct up to the full purchase amount in the first year – $85,000. In fact, those businesses investing less than $800,000 in qualifying equipment can immediately deduct up to $250,000 (that’s way up from the previous amount of $128,000). Spend over $250,000 that year on equipment and you get an additional 50% deprecation bonus.
