Now that the holidays have passed and the twinkling lights have begun to come down, the early nightfall has gotten a bit more depressing. Thankfully, the District can rejoice as its beautiful sunsets begin to occur later and later!
According to Date & Time, Thursday, Jan. 5th will be the first 5 p.m. sunset of the year in Washington, D.C. Meaning that from Jan. 5th onward, sunset will be after 5 p.m.
Daylight Saving Time will begin on March 12, 2023, bringing D.C. more light and longer days for us, making the one hour loss of sleep worth it.
The sun won’t set before 5:00 p.m. again until Nov. 9, 2023.
Until then, we can appreciate the longer periods of sun in our days!
