The typical implementation of DST is to set clocks forward by one hour in the spring (“spring forward”) and set clocks back by one hour in autumn (“fall back”) to return to standard time. As a result, there is one 23-hour day in late winter or early spring and one 25-hour day in the autumn.

Some countries may not observe daylight saving time (DST), whereas other countries may change the start dates and end dates for daylight saving time every year.
