Daylight Savings Time is Over

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 30 October, 2010

(Acapulco, 30 October) Sunday, October 31, at 2:00 am, the time will switch back to 1:00 am, re-establishing standard time in all of Mexico. The “ten percent who never get the word” will show up an hour early for church on Sunday. Though November 1 (All Saints Day) is not a legal holiday, it is part of the "All Souls Day" weekend, and many schools and some businesses will take the day off. This will give some people an extra day to get used to the time change. The federal electric utility reports that daylight savings time in Mexico saves CFE about 9 million pesos annually in operating costs.

Standard time will continue until Sunday, April 3, when at 2:00 am the clock will advance to 3:00 am. This is three full weeks before Easter, which comes late in the month on the 24th.
