    • Hmmm. Interesting. Why is that?

    • I believe dinner is the most important meal of the day and with a confined area where people are awake 24 hours a day, it's hard to say if the afternoon meal or evening meal is more important.

  • Dinner and Supper are not the same...
    Supper is a light evening meal - served in early or late evening, whilst Dinner is usually the main meal of the day, served either in the midday, or early evening (in some countries, Lunch is regarded as the midday meal and/or the main meal of the day).

  • I call it supper because it's what my grandparents always called it and I was raised by them lol, but supper for me is like a snack before I go to bed. I have both dinner and supper. Supper is usually something like cookies and milk before going to sleep. Just some junk to eat at night so I'm not hungry before bed.

  • Interesting question.

    I have some peculiarities with regard to the usage of these words.

    A little background. My family history growing up was decidedly unique when it came to meals. You see, my mom did not just plan and serve the standard 3 square meals. She also planned and served in between meal snacks too. (I know, anal, but it's not like I had another mom to compare to.)

    So, this was the daily meal regimen:

    Breakfast
    Morning coffee
    Lunch (if the meal was light) or dinner (if it was a full hot meal)
    Afternoon coffee
    Supper
    After supper coffee *
    Lunch before bed

    * After supper coffee was the only scheduled meal that was just a beverage and maybe a peice of chocolate or hard candy. All other meals had some food served with it.

  • I heard that places that call the evening meal "supper" call the middle meal "dinner," instead of "lunch."

  • I used to use supper when I was little and lived in a rural area. But then my family moved to a more urban area and people were annoyed by me using that word so I switched to dinner.

  • Despite not being the true definition, I refer to supper as what I eat after dinner. Dinner is not enough to satisfy my hunger.
