ROCKS! Major Dad, Ebola and moi hied thee hither to a 12:40 matinee (Everyone else is at church, so it’s the ‘all adults hour’.{8^P). As much as I hate to admit the Little Brother was correct in his assessment…::sigh::…he was. (WITH one exception. We all thought the music went beautifully.)

    Much as I hate Yankeeland, I have to give them this: they are early risers on Sundays. A lot of churches up here start at 10:30, some even have summer hours and start at 9:30 from June to August.
    They just skip the Sunday dinner (that’s lunch to you Yankees), and have a coffee hour after church instead.

    I am a fellow southerner, John. But calling lunch dinner has always pissed me off.

    Our church has an 8 o’clock service outside during the summer; that way folks can get off to the beach clubs…

    Yeah, I hate the lunch being called dinner thing. Kinda makes the whole idea of brunch make no sense, eh? Would be called brinner, then.
    Our services start at 9:00 and 10:30.

  5. What the hell is Supper then? I thought that was Sunday-Lunch…

  6. Crusader says:

    Supper is Dinner to the folks who wrongly call Lunch Dinner. Make sense? BTW, I hate the term Supper, too.

  7. Cullen says:

    Supper doesn’t bother me. To sup.
    1. The chief meal of the day, eaten in the evening or at midday.
    2. A banquet or formal meal in honor of a person or event.
    3. The food prepared for either of these meals.

    1. A light evening meal when dinner is taken at midday.
    2. A light meal eaten before going to bed.
    3. A dance or social affair where supper is served.

    So, dinner is the main meal, not the evening meal. So supper is the evening meal if lunch is dinner.
    Lunch is always lunch, but sometimes it’s a dinner. The evening meal is either a dinner or a supper.
    Damn, that’s more complicated than it should be.

  8. Crusader says:

    But for how many people who call Lunch Dinner is Supper a smaller meal than their Dinner? Few, I would suppose, so they are calling what they are eating the wrong thing, and Lunch would be the proper term for the (lighter) midday meal, with the evening Dinner (not Supper) being the main meal (in relative size).

  9. Cullen says:

    Agreed. But at least I understand better where the concept comes from. Now I have to call every meal Dinner.

  10. There was never, ever a ‘supper’ in our house growing up, unless it had a ‘last’ in front of it. We had some vague idea that ‘supper’ was what Methodists did around 4 p.m. of a Sunday evening.
