Here’s When Southern Indiana will Spring Forward in 2024
Why Do We Fall Back and Spring Forward?
I have never understood the concept of losing an hour and then gaining it back in the next season. That's probably because I was not alive in 1918. The Germans thought it would be a good idea to extend the hours of daylight during the war. They could save on fuel power this way. The United States decided to do the same thing. But, after World War I, it was up to each state.
Didn't a Law Pass to Eliminate Daylight Saving Time?
There has been a lot of talk about eliminating daylight saving time in the past few years. For now, it looks like we will continue to spring forward and fall back. The Sunshine Protection Act actually passed the Senate in 2022, but no further action was taken to actually make it a bill.

Daylight Saving Time 2024
The Farmer's Almanac is a great resource for all sorts of things from weather predictions to the best day to cut your hair. This is the time of the year when I like to double-check when we lose that hour of sleep but gain more sunshine. Start counting down the Sundays - We 'Spring Forward' Sunday, March 10, 2024. The longer days and shorter nights will switch back on Sunday, November 3, 2024, at 2:00 AM.
According to the Farmer's Almanac, the first official day of spring is Tuesday, March 19, 2024.
