Tonight at 2am we turn the clocks back an hour to mark the end of Daylight Savings Time. Although I absolutely love Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, THIS is my favorite day of the year.
There's something about getting that hour back that makes me positively joyful--as if I've received a long-awaited gift that I finally get to unwrap and savor. It's the very concept of being "given" more time--an entire hour of Life that you can do with whatever you please. Personally, I love the idea that the extra hour comes as we're sleeping. An extra hour of sleep is a rare commodity once you reach adulthood, and it's something I look foward to every year.
