DATE: days, months and seasons

Day and Night

There are 24 hours in a day. The day is divided into "day(time)" and "night(-time)". Daytime is from sunrise (this varies, but we can say approximately 6am) to sunset (we can say approximately 6pm). Night-time is from sunset to sunrise. Every day starts precisely at midnight. AM (Ante-Meridiem = before noon) starts just after midnight. PM (Post-Meridiem=after noon) starts just after noon. This means that 12am and 12pm have no meaning. This diagram shows the cycle of a 24-hour day and the words we use to describe its parts. The day starts at midnight (at the bottom of the diagram).

The word day can have two meanings: 1. the 24 hours between one midnight and the next 2. the time between sunrise and sunset (as distinct from night)

Days of the Week
Notice that "weekdays" and "days of the week" are not the same. "Days of the week" are all 7 days from Monday to Sunday. "Weekdays" are only the 5 days from Monday to Friday. The "weekend" is Saturday and Sunday. Day Weekdays Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Weekend Saturday Sunday Abbreviation Mon. Tue. Wed. Thu. Fri. Sat. Sun. Mo. Tu. We. Th. Fr. Sa. Su.

Months of the Year
This list shows the months of the year used in English-speaking countries and many other parts of the world. The list shows the order of the months, starting from January. The days column shows the number of days in the month. All months have 30 or 31 days, except for February which has 28 days (29 in a leap year). The seasons are approximate and depend on latitude. Some parts of the world have only three seasons. The seasons shown here are for the North Temperate Zone (for example North America). In the southern hemisphere, the seasons are reversed. Every fourth year February has 29 days. This year is a "leap year" and the 29th February is a "leap day". A leap year has 366 days instead of the normal 365.
