Daylight Savings Time signals a number of different seasonal changes like the start of the cold-weather and the impending presence of darkness over daylight. But that doesn't mean it's all bad.

And since this year's start of Daylight Savings Time hit right on the Sunday (Nov. 1) after Halloween, and that extra hour of partying/sleep/weekend was a much needed boost for everyone.

Instead of "falling back" and getting an extra hour of sleep, I'm getting an extra hour of being awake. #DaylightSavingTime
