What's the difference between dinner and supper?

Report as

Depends really. In most cases they are used interchangeably to refer to the meal we eat in the evenings, so there is no difference. However, in some cases it's also a regional dialect thing - particularly in the South, where "dinner" = what the rest of us call "lunch" (the meal eaten around noon or so) ,and "supper" = what the rest of us call "dinner" (the meal eaten in the evening).

When I went to Minnesota, they said lunch was breakfast, dinner was lunch, and supper was dinner. People are strange, aren't they?

A debate my husband and I have all the time.to me, dinner is the evening meal. To him, it is supper! I tell him it is because he is from the hills:). Think dinner is a more refined way of saying it. But in reality it is how you grew up and where you are from. Supper sounds old fashioned to me. But then, I have the last word:). Sometimes. Lol he just know said I always have the last word.
