We have called it supper all of my life. The only time we had dinner was on Sunday at noon, when my dad made a big meal after church. The strange thing is, we have 5 grown children and they all call the evening meal dinner.

Where I live it's dinner at night, in the middle of the day it's always lunch.
When In in Texas supper is confusing because that also means dinner to me.

Lets see.....Around these parts it's

Breakfast..Dinner...Supper 98% of the time.

Sometimes in business or more formal situations Dinner can become "Lunch"
Same scenario... supper can become "Dinner"

I believe that "lunch' at noon and "dinner" at night are more modern and formal terms rather than necessarily having anything to do with food quanities.

Thats my opinion and I'm stickin to it

It's really just a case of semantics, primarily based on your heritage.

Growing up in our household (Czech), Monday thru Saturday we had "breakfast, lunch, & dinner". Sunday, however, as others have mentioned, was always different - i.e. "breakfast, dinner, & supper". The main meal of the day was in the afternoon, & if anyone felt "peckish" later on, we usually had sandwiches or some leftovers from Sunday dinner.

In my family its breakfast, lunch, and dinner mon thru sat and on sun we have breadfast in the morning and dinner about 2pm. We don't eat but 2 meals on sun. We're in Florida if that makes a difference.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner but most of the time it's not much if any of the three...
