There's a chill in the air, the leaves are falling and the nights are beginning to draw in. As we rush headlong towards winter, the annual clock change brings with it dark evenings and, for some, the onset of Seasonal Affective Disorder. The clocks officially move back by one hour at 1am on Sunday 25 October and that's an extra hour for well, whatever takes your fancy really.Top autumn searches:

If you're a party animal then there's no need to hold back this Saturday night. With the extra hour, you'll have plenty of time to nurse your hangover after a full evening of fun, provided of course that you haven't used the extra hour to carry on indulging.
Alternatively Saturday is a good night to throw a party. When the neighbours start complaining at one o'clock in the morning, you can reliably inform them that it is, in fact, only midnight.
If you're more of an outdoorsy type, you may want to leave your extra hour entitlement until the morning, where the early daylight means your lucky pooch might just get a few more miles out of you before the Sunday roast.
And if you're stuck at home, make the most of the extra time and get an early night... after all, there's more to the bedroom than just sleeping.
For most of us though, the change will go unnoticed as we peacefully slumber... but then an extra hour of sleep is bound to be a popular choice.
