Monday morning, should you find yourself in the shower with your underwear still on or stepping on the cat’s tail, you might actually have a legitimate excuse. Springing the clock forward an hour for daylights savings creates a society of clumsy, grumpy sleep-starved Americans, according to a study by the Better Sleep Council. This Sunday at 2 a.m. the clocks skip forward an hour, but don’t spend the weekend aggressively napping and stressing over circadian rhythms: There’s too much good stuff going on in Santa Fe, and your cat will forgive you. Here are the weekend highlights.
