Parts of the Day: Early morning, late morning, etc.
Answer

Question

Could you explain what time is early morning, late morning, early afternoon, and late afternoon?    -Neyzen


Answer

Here is a list of different parts of the day. There is no exact time when each one begins and ends, because they can vary according to your lifestyle and the hours of daylight at each time of year, but this list shows some approximate times that many people would agree with.

 

Parts of the Day

Morning     5 am to 12 pm (noon)

  • Early morning    5 to 8 am
  • Late morning     11 am to 12pm

 

Afternoon     12 pm to 5 pm

  • Early afternoon   1 to 3pm
  • Late afternoon    4 to 5pm

 

Evening     5 pm to 9 pm

  • Early evening   5 to 7 pm


Night         9 pm to 4 am

 

I hope this helps.
