  • If my hubby is home we have dinner at that time. My friends have thought that it was odd but it is just the way that we do things.

  • Eh...Sometimes we do it too. We like to have dinner done by 6pm. If we eat a snack at 4, then we don't eat until 7 and that is no good. If we eat early, we do have a snack before bed. But most of the time we eat before 5 and 6pm.

  • I think it can be a older person thing, my grandparents used to eat around 5- 5.30. I caught my Dad getting his dinner ready at 5/30 the other day, and gave him a hard time about it lol. 4 is early but if they are hungry and its works for them, so be it. Do they eat supper as well. I do know of some people that eat early like that then have something light "supper" at about 9.......

  • On Sunday, we often eat dinner at 3 or 4. It is quite common to have an early meal on Sunday. You sound as though you just want to complain. It doesn't seem like a big problem. People do not have to live by your time schedule. Get over it.

  • My inlaws and parents usually serve around 5. We're used to eating around 8, so it takes some adjusting.

    Course, when you are up before dawn and in bed before 9, I guess they get hungry early.
