Everything’s big in Texas, so you might think that they have their own time zone. Actually, Texas is part of the U.S. Central Standard Time Zone (CST). If you live on the east coast and are part of the Eastern Standard Time Zone (EST), like New York, a city like El Paso would be one hour behind you. So if it’s noon in New York, it’s 11:00 in the morning in Texas. If you live in Mountain Standard Time (MST) like Colorado, Texas would be one hour ahead of you. And finally, if you live on the west coast, like California, Texas would be two whole hours ahead of you.
