For those of us who are already planning our weekends, don't forget about the extra hour of sleep on Saturday night.

Clocks will "fall back" one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday.

This once-a-year occurrence can mean a few things. Stay up an hour later than normal. Or, go to bed at your regular time and just savor that extra hour of sleep. Or, if you don't rely on your cell phone for time--which auto-updates with the atomic clock--you could be unfashionably late for a Sunday morning brunch or activity. Regardless, change your clocks and enjoy the extra hour. If only that could happen every day.
