You know, the meal you have in the evening, what do you call it?

You have breakfast, lunch and then...

Tea is not a meal. Its a drink.

Either. I flip-flop like crazy. Even supper, once in a blue moon.

Dinner, I suppose? But that's not in the evening. It's in the late afternoon. I don't consider the evening to start until 6 pm.

The real question is... what do you call the meal between dinner and bedtime?

I had fish and chips for tea tonight so yes, I call tea tea because tea is tea and those that don't call tea tea because tea is also tea should get over it. Tea is tea and tea is tea. Let tea be.

Tea towels are used to dry dishes after eating your tea so that makes sense for you to think of tea towels ;p

I intentionally avoid naming it in order to fuel my massive insecurities. Is it time to eat? What do you want to eat later? We had tacos last night. I don't need no labels.

I remember a YouTube video comparing differences between UK and NA and an exchange student told a story about living with an English family and was invited down for Tea at some point in the evening, and was surprised to find food rather than tea lol

I grew up in a family that called lunch dinner, and dinner supper. So it was breakfast, dinner, supper. I've kinda broken free of those naming conventions as an adult. Because in the working world you never get a supper break. It's always a lunch or dinner break. So that's what I call them. Meaning the evening one I call dinner. But like theundeadhero I rarely refer to it specifically as anything. It's really just time for food

But the tea/dinner thing reminds me of the age old american south BS where all sodas are called Coke. It makes no sense, it just is

Edit: Though I must say, I'm surprised Supper is not an option. Its such an old and ingrained word in the english language, and I'm pretty sure it's "ye olde english", when "to sup" was literally a term for eating, much like "to dine". But we never say "to lunch" on something

When I was in NZ I'd call it tea. I call it dinner now.

Supper.

It was always what my parents called it when I was growing up, so I in-turn say it unless it's like some fancy dress-up formal kinda meal.
