What term do you guys use to refer to the meal you have at the end of the day….dinner or supper?
I used to say supper back in the day, but it started sounding weird to me so now I say dinner. Do you think it’s a regional thing?

It’s a regional thing. The Southerners in my family say supper. Those from wlesewhere say dinner.

I say dinner – alot of my older family members say supper so it may also be an age related thing.

Supper is what Jesus had, LOL. That’s what my mom always said. We eat dinner.

My grandmother was very insistent that “dinner” is lunch and “supper” is, well, supper. I use them interchangeably though.

I say both for the evening meal, but it always throws me when someone says dinner to mean lunch.

I say dinner. Supper is considered to be a different meal. It’s generally what my family jokingly refers to as Linner, the time between lunch and dinner that counts for both.

My Fiance is from Scotland, and to him, lunch is “dinner”, dinner is “tea” and a late-night snack is “supper”!

Everyone I know calls it dinner except my grandparents. I think that supper is like a halfway meal between lunch and dinner for them!

Ha!! I had to laugh at this post… we’ve been having a debate over this!! I’m from California, but moved to Texas in 2008. My FH says supper and I say dinner! It’s a southern thing to say supper, I suppose ;]

I use them both, but when talking to just family and friends I usually say supper. I don’t know why really. I guess it’s because that’s what we’ve always said
