LOS ANGELES (CBS) — You know its truly fall when daylight-saving time ends.
Daylight-saving time ends Sunday, when California “falls back” one hour at 2 a.m. and the state’s residents earn an extra hour of sleep – unless you have a baby who probably didn’t get the memo about the extra sleep.
Public safety officials say the time to “fall back” is an opportunity for residents to change batteries in smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and evacuation flashlights and make other emergency precautions.

Daylight-saving time was officially adopted by the United States in 1966, when Congress passed the Uniform Time Act. However, the law does not require any area to observe daylight-saving time, which is the practice of adjusting clocks so that there is extra afternoon daylight during the summer.
