Evening in Parambikkulam, Kerala, India

Evening is a part of the day. It starts around 6 PM and lasts until nighttime.[1] Evening can be characterized by the Sun lowering towards the horizon, thus darkening in the sky; and by activities that usually occur during this time, such as eating supper or having more formal social gatherings and entertainment. The term is often used up to the end of these activities, even when that time would otherwise be considered night.[citation needed]
