A poll with more specific options coming. Now I'm genuinely curious. Not asking about any meal before 3pm or after 8pm.


Theory:


Up north/and some parts of the midlands, we were more working class and got home irregularly from manual labour, and had our first meal of the day besides breakfast/brekky, at night or 6pm-8pm. Because it was our first meal of the day despite the time it was eaten, we called it tea. Supper is seen as a luxury and therefore we dont use the term, and dinner is more so for lunch which is also a casual dinner, and therefore dont use the term because we rarely had luxury or casual meals. If we did say dinner, it was for school or work lunch time at midday. :yy:


for THOSE WHO VOTED: DINNER-NORTHENER and DINNER-MIDLANDER

Anonymously or openly state which region please!!

North East England (Newcastle, Northumberland, Sunderland, Durham, Stockton...)
North West England (Liverpool, Lancashire, Manchester, Cheshire, Blackpool...)
Yorkshire (Leeds, Bradford, Doncaster...)
East Midlands (Nottingham, Leics, Lincolnshire..)
West Midlands (Brum, Staffs, Black Country, Warwick...)

And the time you eat it, and if you grew up hearing tea. Cheers!!! That's really the purpose of the thread!
