Today we “fall back” and “gain an hour.” The idea is so funny, and it’s often hard to wrap our minds around having an extra hour on Sunday morning, but we certainly enjoy it.
My mother-in-law is a Spanish speaker, and she called this concept of gaining an hour “la hora vieja” — “the old hour.” I think it’s a cool concept because we are now getting back that “old hour” we lost in the spring. Here it is again, for us to use as we please, until it disappears again in the spring.
I hope you enjoyed your extra hour today. I used mine for extra sleep and extra time with family. I wouldn’t mind gaining an hour every morning!
