Dinner is the largest meal of the day. In traditional farming communities, it occurs in the afternoon and is followed by supper. Elsewhere, dinner follows lunch and is the last true meal of the day - this is excluding midnight snacks and such.

Dinner is normally a cooked meal. The primary dish nearly always contains meat of some sort, possibly seafood or poultry. Dinner is usually ended with dessert.
