The Invisible Time Change

Every year in the fall when we set our clocks back an hour, ending Daylight Savings Time, it seems to have a dramatic impact on most everyone. People slink and droop and complain for about a week, their entire circadian rhythms disrupted by one little hour.

So why didn't that seem to happen this year?

I suspect that, ironically, timing was everything. We had Halloween the same weekend as the time change. Then, two days later, Election Day.

Apparently, if you do a good job of scaring the crap out of people, they don't even notice that hour.

The fall back is awesome, it's the spring forward that I hate.
