    What time does everyone consider late at night?

    Just a silly question about the relationship of time. Do you consider 9PM late and must get to sleep? What about 11PM? When the clock strikes midnight? Or even later than that?

    I don't have a regular schedule but midnight is my high water mark.  I think it is late after that.

    I work graveyard shift and usually have to be asleep by 6pm, so I'll go with 8pm being late because of conditioning =P Even if I manage to sleep in til 8am on my days off, when 4 and 5pm roll around I get sleepy automatically.

    I'm nocturnal (and an insomniac) by nature, but unfortunately life just doesn't seem too willing to let me live by that schedual sad

    That said, for me, "late" basically depends on what's going on tomorrow, if I have to be up by 6 am, then midnight's starting to push it. If I know I'm going to be able to sleep in, though... well it's entirely possible I'll still be up when the sun rises.

    I'm usually up until 12-1 AM. Hey right on time, do we really need to hear "in the morning" when you already said AM? Jeeez!

    3 am, I go to sleep between 5-7 and wake around 11-12. It is entirely subjective.

    Any time after midnight is my idea of late at night.

    11pm, have to get up with the little guys at 6:30am. Anything later and I am a zombie.

    Usually, I sawing wood smile after 11pm.  If I am out, I can make it to 1 or 2am, but that's really late.  A few times, I've actually stayed up until 7am (weekend).

    Anytime after 9pm is late for me. But I'm a carer and have to rise at 5.30am.  Given my own choice I would probably say that any time after 10pm was late.

    Usually go to bead around 1am or 2am and get up about 7:30 am to 8am to go to work during the week. On weekends I sleep in though maybe even until 1 or 2 pm sometimes after staying up until 3 or 4 am.

    I consider 3 a.m. late at night.  It is oftentimes the darkest time of night.  I am usually awake at that time-reading hubs & answering questions.  If I am feeling sleepy, I just put a horror movie on my portable dvd & just go to sleep.
