Evening is the period in which the daylight is decreasing, between the late afternoon and night, around the time when dinner is taken. Though the term is subjective, evening is typically understood to begin just before twilight, sunset, during the close of the standard business day, 5 pm – and extend until night – typically astronomical sunset, 9 pm.

In the rural American South, "evening" ["eev-nin"] is often used to describe the entire late afternoon, especially when the main meal of the day, dinner, is taken in the early afternoon; evening is thus anytime after dinner.
