The viral photo features the famous singer and a caption that says “Turn Back Time. One hour this Sunday. Cher with your friends,” seems clever, but wait… daylight saving time means the clocks will turn FORWARD. If you follow the directions in the meme you might wake up feeling a bit like Marty McFly…

Or miss out on your Sunday activities. An easy way to remember which way to turn your clock is with the old saying spring forward, fall back. Remember to turn your clocks one hour forward Saturday night.
