Daylight Saving Time: Fall 2008
So, when exactly do we reset our clocks? And is it forward or backward one hour?

Short answer: On Sunday, 2 November, 2008 at 2:00am, you should set your clock back one hour to 1:00am. (Remember "spring forward, fall back...").
Easy answer: Most people who go to bed earlier than the wee hours of the morning simply set their clocks back one hour before they go to bed on Saturday, November 1st.
