Just a reminder to avoid any embarrassing time mixups, Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend.

So, which way to turn your clock? Go by the old adage, "Spring forward, Fall behind" - set those clocks back one hour Saturday night, Nov. 5, so you'll wake up with the right time Sunday.

The shift officially takes place at 2 a.m. local time Sun. Nov. 6.

Curious about the history behind DST? Here's a video to help explain:
