Did you wake up this morning, look at your phone, then look at a clock on the wall, and feel deeply confused? That's right, friends: It's the end of Daylight Savings Time again.
At 2 a.m. local time last night, most Americans' clocks fell back an hour to effectively end the period of Daylight Savings Time, which will begin again in March of 2024.
Here's a fun fact you might not know: Not every state in the US participates in Daylight Savings Time — specifically, Arizona and Hawaii sit it out every year. You can read more about why here.
Of course, with the confusion that Daylight Savings Time seems to sow, there are also plenty of jokes. Here's what some of the best wisecrackers on Twitter had to say about the whole deal:

Daylight Savings Time as a kid: "Oh cool, an extra hour of sleep!"Daylight Savings Time as an adult with kids: "Oh cool, my kids get up at 4:30 instead of 5:30 and now I have one less hour of light at the end of the day which will trigger my seasonal affective disorder!"
