My friends think it’s funny when I say “What are you having for supper tonight?” “PPPPffffffttttt Supper? it’s called dinner Angie” so they tell me!
I have always said supper, what’s the big deal dinner, supper same difference right?
I’m not thinking so guys, read on…..
I’ve done a little research:
Dinner is the main meal of the day, eaten in the evening or at midday
Middle English 1250-1300
Originally breakfast and then later lunch usually the main meal of the day, the time from midday to evening. People started say din-din in 1905.
Are you ready for din-din gosh I’d rather say supper thank you. 🙂
Supper , the evening meal, often the principal meal of the day,
“the last meal of the day” , “to eat the evening meal”
Middle English 1150-1475
I think I’ll stick with Supper since it seems to be the correct way of using the english language in describing what I eat at my “evening meal”. 🙂
