The 5 best things to do with your extra hour

    To commemorate the end of Daylight Savings Time, we’ve thought of a few ways to spend that extra hour you’ll get this weekend. Tell us what you would add to the list. (And don’t tell us “sleep in.” That’s boring.)

    Remember that hour we all lost when Daylight Savings time began in March? We are getting it back this weekend. At 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6, we must all turn back our clocks one hour.

    Oh, and change your smoke detector batteries, while you’re at it.

    To commemorate the beginning of Standard Time, we’ve thought of a few ways to spend that extra hour. Tell us what you would add to the list in the comments below. (And don’t tell us “sleep in.” That’s boring.)

    5. Walk the dog. She’s going to have to go sooner or later.

    4. Watch that Netflix movie you’ve been holding on to for the last month. Or maybe just some re-runs.

    3. Buy your friends a round of drinks after, er… before closing time?

    2. Clean the house or apartment.

    1. Host “the party that never was” starting at 2 a.m. and ending at 2 a.m. You won’t even have to invite your neighbors.
