Early reminder - clocks go forward this weekend

Just a reminder that the clocks will go forward the night of 28th/29 March 2015 so remember to change them then if they don't update automatically.

Re: Early reminder - clocks go forward this weekend

However did we manage before reminders on internet forums?


- Even earlier reminder: Christmas this year is on the 25th December - which happens to be a Friday.

We wrote it down on our old fashioned paper calendars. In fact iirc some calendars did/do come with the clock change dates noted on them already. For those who don't know it's always the last weekend in March and the last weekend in October - March date forwards, October one backwards.

"Spring Forward. Fall Back."

I had a moment of panic before heading to the airport yesterday - couldn't remember if the clocks in CH changed on the 22nd or this coming weekend. Thanks for the reminder.

I always get confused between March and April for the 'spring forward'. The 'fall back' I manage to remember is October. Getting old I guess...

Always the last complete weekends that are at the end of March/October.
e.g. it would be Sat 24th as opposed to Sat 31st, when it falls as such.

This is so sad. I was in the U.S. when the clocks chaged on the 15th... Now I have to do it again. More darkness in the morning.

Yes, it's a bummer. We go on hols on Sunday so get to move the clocks forward for two nights, then back again as we'll be in a different time zone.

So, the last SUNDAY in October and March.
