    According to Scripture, the term was whenever the sunset.

    And the evening and the morning were the next day.

    with the setting sun, is the next day.

    *With that said, in the summer months, the days are longer (earth is closest to the sun) and in the winter, the days are shorter (earth is farther away from the sun). However, we know the day is over, as soon as it gets dark!

    It's funny you should ask the question because in France where I work 6 months a year whenever you enter a shop you are expected to say a Bonjour or a Bonsoir (good day or good evening) So I asked your question and was told 5 to 6 o clock. I presume the same applies in England.

    What about if you live near the arctic circle or Alaska?

    Good, been going threw some tough times, but still kicking. Nice to see you on the site, hope all is well with you and yours...
    ACCORDING TO UNCLE FLOUNDIES BOOK OF KNOLEDGE IT STARTS AFTER YOU HAVE HAD SUPPER

    after the sun sets ; that's evening

    I usually greet someone with "Good Evening" after 6:00 PM.

    I would guess, and it is just a guess, but I believe evening starts when the sun dips below the horizon. There is still daylight left but you are aware that the day is ending.
