What do you call your meals?

July 9, 2007 1:59pm CST
I was discussing this on a forum with my friends. I have breakfast in the morning, lunch in the afternoon and dinner in the evening. I've heard people calling lunch dinner and breakfast brunch and all sorts! What do you call your meals? If you don't live in England, what are your words for breakfast, lunch, etc? x

Brunch is a word used to describe a meal that is too late for breakfast and too early for lunch. It is derived by combining the words breakfast and lunch, thus coming up with the words, brunch. Dinner is the term used to describe the main meal of the day. Usually this is serve from late afternoon to evening time. Sometimes the expression is interchangeable with supper which is used to describe the last meal of the day. Lunch is usually taken during mid noon and describes a meal that is taken between two meals. Breakfast, on the other hand, is usually the first meal of the day.

I grew up eating breakfast, dinner, and supper. Then I went to college, and got really confused, as people were eating dinner at night, and having lunch. (Sigh) eventually, this became habit for me, and now, I call it breakfast, lunch and dinner. My mom still tells me I'm wrong, and dinner is that mid-day meal. LOL! It's just about time for me to get "supper" going now. :)

I live in the USA and I have breakfast, lunch and dinner nearly all the time. I haven eaten brunch on the occasional Sunday when I sleep in later, but I usually go to my grandparents where they have a meal about 1:00 in the afternoon that they call dinner. Then they eat a light supper later on that night.

Like you Becca, I say breakfast, lunch and dinner, I know people who say supper instead of dinner and some posh folk say tea. I'm quite happy with what I (and you) call my meals and would add that when I visit India, they tend to call their meals there the same as we do here.
