Most Michigan residents are baffled about why we continue to recognize Daylight Saving time in the Great Lakes State. Year after year there is talk of eliminating DTS, yet here we are, preparing to 'spring forward'.

We cannot be the only ones looking forward to the time change. When we turn the clocks back every year in November, it always takes a while to get used to. Most of us are ready for bed at 5:00 PM because it is so dark.

When does Michigan spring forward in 2024?

Michigan will spring forward on Sunday, March 10th, 2024 at 2:00 AM.

Sure we lose an hour, but the fact that it will be light outside longer is well worth it. It also means spring is right around the corner.

When is the first day of spring in 2024?

The first day of spring is Tuesday, March 19th, 2024.

Does every state in the US participate in Daylight Saving Time?

No, not every state in the US practices Daylight Saving Time. According to NBC News, many states have considered legislation to cancel it.

Only two states in the US are on standard time, Arizona and Hawaii.

Maybe one day Michigan will be the thrid state to stop messing with the clocks. Until then, the countdown is on to Daylight Saving Time.
