Daylight Saving Time (or summertime as it is called in many countries) is a way of getting more light out of the day by advancing clocks by one hour during the summer. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.
In which direction does the clock move? The clock moves ahead (thus, losing one hour) when DST starts, typically in the spring, and falls back one hour (thus, gaining one hour) when DST ends in the fall. To make it easier to remember which way the clock goes, keep in mind one of these sayings: “spring forward, fall back”. --> fall /US/ = autumn /UK/
