  • Okay, now here you've opened a can of worms. 'Cause over here dinner means different things to different people. "Dinner" to one person can mean "tea" to another or "lunch" to yet another. So you're going to have to specify what you personally define dinner as.
    Personally however I find that dinner is the third large meal of the day, and it can occur anywhere between 3pm and 6pm, but generally/ usually at 5pm.

  • I always thought Brits called the noon meal dinner, and the evening meal supper. I say that because that's how my father used the words. He was not British born, but his parents were very British and I thought he picked it up from them. But then, that may have been 100+ year old British terms since that's when they emigrated.

  • I eat my dinner whenever my girlfriend decides to opens her legs. Which is every night around 9pm. I'm not even joking btw!

    But I guess you could say I have two dinners since I have my food dinner usually around 6-7pm. I would say that's about average. Then I have my 'fish supper' around 9pm, usually...

  • Dinner is the largest meal of the day, usually in the evening at 6-7 oclock.
    But some regional variations have lead to many areas (especially regions which historically have a lot of industrialisation) thinking of dinner as the noon meal (otherwise known as lunch) and the evening meal being known as 'tea' (from 'afternoon tea' an often overlooked light meal time in the early afternoon).

    • No, not really. Supper would probably be a really late meal, after dinner/tea, and it's not a very big one, nor is it something that we often do. Only the really posh people will have supper :P (At least, that's my experience of it)

  • As I eat dinner not tea I eat my dinner 20:00-20:30 hours but that fits in with my busy life.
    Tea is 17:00-19:00 and Dinner is 19:00 onwards.
    really depends what part you're from we all call it different things.
