    What time does morning start?

    I don’t mean what time does it switch from P.M. to A.M.; I want to know, what time is it morning to you? When I go to bed at 4:00 am there is a debate that follows in my house. Is this still the middle of the night or is it morning?

    For me, morning is anything between noon and 2AM. I'm a late night person, too. When everybody else is having lunch, I'm having oatmeal!

      Haha, that is too funny. Yeah, the sleeping in thing isn't working out so good for me. I go to bed when the coffee is brewing. I still have to get kids up for school at 6:00. I'll be regretting this once I have bags under my eyes the size of balloons

      I've always functioned better at night. It's when I get the most work done. I don't have kids, though, so it's a little easier for me. smile

      Kids or not... it seems like there are noooo distractions at night doesn't it? That is the place where I find peace ;-)

    Another one who doesnt go to bed to late. I am usually up to 3 am.  Morning for me depends when the sunrise comes. When I can see the sun starting to rise in the east.

      3 am is actually about as late as I would like to go to bed... the sun rising does kind of force my day to feel like it has officially started. Does anyone hound you about being such a night owl?

    Morning for me is 7 am M-F (not by choice) and anytime after 12pm Saturday and Sunday.  But I'm a night owl...so bedtime could be anywhere from 2am-4am.  tongue

      Awesome! If 7 am is morning for you on a weekday, then I'll continue defending 4 am as "the middle of the night"! I gotta appreciate my fellow night owls! Thanks :-)

    I've always considered morning to be when the sun comes up - when light starts to appear. When we are camping, and we stay up all night, the sun coming up prompts us to say, "It's morning already?"

      Ha ha, yes, yes I know that feeling all too well. But why is it when we're camping we seem to be able to pick ourselves up pretty good?

      Being out in the fresh air? I don't know - that's a good question. I do know that I am more at home when I camping...more alive.

      Me too! I'm so glad the season is finally approaching. It's nice to actually be excited to crawl out of bed in the morning... even if you smell like campfire!

    I also got the same question... I usually go to bed around 3 to 4 am. There are also times that I only got the chance to sleep at around 6 am already... I wake up around 11 in the morning and sometimes 12 noon... It's only by that time that I take my breakfast, so I consider that this is the morning for me... heheheh

      Lucky you... sleeping until noon. Do you feel like the day flies onces you're up? "Hey how did it get so late so early?"

    For the last 10 years or so while being on night shift, my morning time was usually around 10 or 12 o'clock at night, but now that I finally got off that stupid shift (job included), my mornings start whenever the hell I decide to get up; ha!
    Either way, whatever you call it, night time has a different feel to it, but even the nefarious vampires need a good dose of sunlight from time to time......

      I live while the rest of the world sleeps, but I couldn't handle a night shift! Having my day completely backwards, I'd never get used to that.

    Cat,

    I am with you.  Currently, I am a late night, late morning person.  My day usually ends between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. and I wake between 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.  Fortunately, my wife gets the 2 oldest of our kids on the school bus; their school bus arrives at 6:30 a.m.  I get my youngest on her school bus at 8 a.m.

    I think when morning starts is a relative thing.  At an early time in my life, before I began my law career, I worked a job with a night shift from 11 p.m. until 8 a.m. 5 days a week.  I slept from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; then I slept Saturday and Sunday nights.  You will notice I missed a lot of sleeping time over the transitional days between the work weeks.

    Some might say the day begins when the sun rises and ends when the sun sets.  Some might say the day begins when they open their eyes and ends when their eye lids shut.  Some at the North Pole might say the day begins and ends after months have gone by.  On the planet Mercury a day last a little over 58 days, while the year is only 88 days.

    Stealing from Einstein, I think it is all relative.

      People live at the North Pole?  LOL!

      Well if that ain't a heck of an answer! :-) Even though I'm up all night almost every night, I just think that night shift thing would kick my butt.
      I hope the mornings you sleep till 10,  aren't the days you need to get your daughter on the bus ;-)

    Morning starts when my dog needs to be let out and my cats want to be feed - around 8:00 or 9:00 am.  If I don't feed my cats on time, they will practically sit on my head and meow at me until I do.

    I am living with my parents and 4am is definitely morning to them since I think they are almost getting up by that time. I think it depends on the time you climb your bed. They sleep at 9pm. I know, early. As for me, morning is 5am 'til before noon. But that doesn't mean I wake up at 5am. smile) I think it's a cultural thing too.

      I always thought old people took naps and went to bed early... then I dated a guy who had me taking naps. I'd lay in bed and look up at the ceiling, trying not to laugh about how much I felt like a corn ball laying down in the middle of the day! :-)

    I have that same problem because I work on night shift.  When I get to work and it is past midnight I still think of it as the same day.  Morning would be when I wake up.  so when I get home to sleep and wake up at 500 pm that is my morning.  on a normal day I consider morning when the sun comes up.  Night is when it gets dark out.
