“Don’t forget to set your clocks from sunshine and happiness back to misery and despair”

“Don’t forget to set your clocks from sunshine and happiness back to misery and despair (tonight/this weekend)” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. Turning clocks back one hour means that winter is coming, and the sun will set earlier.
   
“If you’re in the US don’t forget to set your clocks from sunshine and happiness back to misery and despair this weekend” was posted on Twitter by Ben on November 5, 2021. “Don’t forget to set yours clocks from sunshine and happiness back to misery and despair” was posted on Twitter by Annette on November 6, 2021. “Don’t forget to set your clocks from sunshine and happiness back to misery and despair this weekend. #timechange” was posted on Twitter by Cosmic Insider later on November 6, 2021. The saying probably originated on an image.
 
   
Wikipedia: Daylight saving time
Daylight saving time (DST), also daylight savings time or daylight time (the United States and Canada) and summer time (United Kingdom, European Union, and others), is the practice of advancing clocks during warmer months so that darkness falls at a later clock time. 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”, from the North American English word “fall” for autumn) 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.
