WHAT DOES MIDDAY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

midday

Noon

Noon (also midday or noon time) is usually defined as 12 o'clock in the daytime. The term midday is also used colloquially to refer to a range of time, often 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Solar noon is 12 o'clock apparent solar time, or around 12 – 1 p.m. local time, depending on daylight saving time and the moment when the sun crosses the meridian. Solar noon is when the sun is at its highest elevation in the sky. The clock time of solar noon depends on the longitude and date. The opposite of noon is midnight. In many cultures in the Northern Hemisphere, noon had ancient geographic associations with the direction "south" (as did midnight with "north" in some cultures). Remnants of the noon = south association are preserved in the words for noon in French (Midi) and Italian (Mezzogiorno), both of which also refer to the southern parts of the respective countries.

Famous quotes and sentences with the word midday.

Thomas Arnold
One's age should be tranquil, as childhood should be playful. Hard work at either extremity of life seems out of place. At midday the sun may burn, and men labor under it; but the morning and evening should be alike calm and cheerful.

Nick Frost
I like to go home early, that's my thing. My idea of a pub crawl lasts from midday until 5 P.M., then I can go home, play with my kid, have tea and go to bed.
3
Jim Henson
There was a little afternoon show that was called Afternoon. Back in those days in television, most local stations had a midday show for housewives that had a series of things. It was like a variety show for midday.

6
Eleanor Roosevelt
Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.
7
Amelia Warner
The wrap party for the 'Lorna Doone' TV series was pretty special. We went to about four clubs, then four people's houses, and I got home at midday the next day. I'd been wearing ridiculous green shoes all night, and the dye had smudged all over my legs.
