What Time Do You Have Dinner?

Usually, what time do you have dinner on a normal day? When I compare dinner patterns of a few people I know, they can be even a few hours apart. o_o I find that it's often variations between countries and their traditions that cause these contrasts, so you can also put where you're from if you like. ^_^ I have dinner usually late into the night, but I eat something light. Cooked food is what we have for lunch, rather than dinner, as some people do. =P I can't wait for it until dinnertime, not only because it's pretty late for us, but also because I'm very hungry when I get home from school and need something to restore my energy. I would estimate that I have my dinner at about 20:00-21:00 every day (the Eastern European way xD). How 'bout you? =P

We normally have dinner around 6 or 7pm each day, though it depends on what else I'm doing, or what time I'm working that night. Dinner is always a proper cooked meal though, I don't eat breakfast or lunch so I don't think I could wait until 10pm to have something to eat. I usually don't like eating after about 8pm, as I don't think it's very good for my digestion unless I'm planning on staying awake for a long time afterwards.

Oh, so you're like the opposite. =P I don't have problems with digestion because I don't have cooked food for dinner. ^_^

We usually eat dinner around 6:30-7. We eat cooked food (as you know since you come to my house like every weekend.. xD). Our dinner schedule hasn't been influenced by tradition but on logic. It's a lot easier to eat dinner at seven because I have tennis at nine. =P I have plenty of time to digest before sports this way.^_^

when I feel like it. I don't like schedules. You never know what could happen that day. No point in setting a time to eat.

i cook food at home and i would usually go into the kitchen before an hour before we take our dinner and i would cook it and may be around 8.00-8.30pm i feed my son and after that i.e around 9.00pm we would take our dinner and finish it as we are awake atleast till 11.30pm and later before sleep i would sometimes give some juice to my family. butsometimes it happens that when we are back from gym we would be hungry and may be sometimes we would take our dinner a bit early.
