Daylight Saving Time is just around the corner, meaning it’s time to change the clock. This also means that Americans will have an extra hour to sleep as clocks will be set back by an hour. Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday at 2 a.m.

The United States has for decades changed its clocks back by one hour in the fall, and forward an hour in the spring. The idea of daylight saving was concocted by Benjamin Franklin to save the expense of candlelight. In the United States, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not follow daylight saving time. The U.S. territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and American Samoa also do not observe daylight saving time.

Roughly 78 countries around the world observe Daylight Saving Time, but not Russia, China, India and Japan. When the U.S. "fall back," the East Coast returns to Eastern Standard Time.

Most mobile devices, tablets, cable boxes and smartphones will update the time change automatically. However, traditional watches, clocks and other non-Internet enabled devices (stoves, microwaves) will require an old-fashioned manual change.

Here are some quotes, courtesy of Search Quotes, about changing clocks an hour:

1. “I say it is impossible that so sensible a people [citizens of Paris], under such circumstances, should have lived so long by the smoky, unwholesome and enormously expensive light of candles if they had really known that they might have had as much pure light of the sun for nothing.” -- Benjamin Franklin

2. “An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later.” -- Winston Churchill

3. “Daylight time, a monstrosity in timekeeping.” -- Harry S. Truman

4. “You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight saving time.” -- Dave Barry

5. “I don’t mind going back to daylight saving time. With inflation, the hour will be the only thing I've saved all year.” -- Victor Borge

6. “Don’t forget it's daylight saving time. You spring forward, then you fall back. It's like Robert Downey Jr. getting out of bed.” --David Letterman
