That's a US-centric view.

In the EU, they happen at 01:00 UT/UTC/GMT (depending on which language you
use) in both directions. In Israel the forward shift occurs at 2am on a
Friday. Iraq and Jordan make the changes on Friday, while Egypt moves
forward on Fridays and back on Thursdays, in both cases at midnight. Chile
changes on Saturdays.
