We're giving you one good excuse to sleep an extra hour this weekend!

Daylight Saving Time is just around the corner. That means you'll be turning the clocks back as you hit the hay Saturday.

The idea of changing the clocks twice a year first came about to provide more daylight during the evening hours in the spring and summer and was later implemented as a way to try and conserve energy.

Since then, studies have gone back and forth as to whether any more or less energy is used.

Daylight Saving Time happens Sunday, November 4th.
