Halloween 2015 ends with a special treat for late-night revelers — an extra hour to sleep in on Sunday morning.

Nov. 1 marks the end of Daylight Savings Time, so at 2 a.m. clocks are set back to 1 a.m.

California and most other states will “fall back” to Standard Time on Sunday. Only Hawaii and most of Arizona do not change with the rest of the country.

As usual, firefighters urge people to use the time change as a reminder to check smoke alarms and replace the batteries if necessary. It is also a good time to reset timers on outdoor lights and lawn sprinkler systems.

The Automobile Club of Southern California warns drivers to be on the lookout for school children and other pedestrians, since it will be dark for an hour longer in the mornings.

If you’re confused about the correct time, check out the website of the U.S. Naval Observatory, which operates the nation’s “master clock.” Here’s the official time from the observatory:
