We shift from Eastern Daylight Time to Eastern Standard Time every year on the first Sunday of November and then switch back to Eastern Daylight Time on the second Sunday of March.
Daylight savings was first implemented as a way to save energy, but some say there are very few practical reasons to keep it in play.
People have said that the shift make days seem shorter and supporters say that ending the change in time would create darker mornings.
What do you think should happen?
