It’s Time to Spring Ahead and Push the Clock Ahead by One Hour



SOMERVILLE, NJ – No, the mischievous leprechauns that will be out and about during Sunday’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade  will have had nothing to do with the hour that’s about to go  missing overnight.

The borough’s 27th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade happens to fall on the first day of Daylight Savings Time and will begin at 1:30 p.m. down Main Street.

So even though spring has not yet sprung – the first day of spring is March 20 - the calendar says it is time to set the clocks ahead by one hour.
