midnight is the cut off for happy hour. 16 happy happy hours on the buy one get one free offer

 

Awesome!

 

There is no 12 am or pm. Am means before noon and pm after. To describe midnight as am or pm is confusing as it is equally both.

 

Sorry for the pedantic thread f ck.

 

My alarm clock, which designates "12am" as midnight and "12pm" as noon, would disagree with you. 555

Not as straight forward as it may seem:

 

Altho it has been cleared up with the post stating "Midnight" from the owner.

 

 

It is not always clear what times "12:00 a.m." and "12:00 p.m." denote. From the Latin words meridies (midday), ante (before) and post (after), the term ante meridiem (a.m.) means before midday and post meridiem (p.m.) means after midday. Since strictly speaking "noon" (midday - merides (m.)) is neither before nor after itself, the terms a.m. and p.m. do not apply.[17] Use of the abbreviation m. for noon, as in "12:00 m." for noon, would resolve the matter but is unhelpful because the initial "m." (Latin merides) could suggest the opposite (midnight) in English; midnight, literally both 12 hours before and 12 hours after noon, could then be either 12:00 a.m. or 12:00 p.m., leaving the other end of the puzzle unresolved - hence the convention of 12 a.m. for midnight and 12 p.m. for noon.

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language has a usage note on this topic: "By convention, 12 AM denotes midnight and 12 PM denotes noon. Because of the potential for confusion, it is advisable to use 12 noon and 12 midnight."[18]

Many U.S. style guides, and NIST's "Frequently asked questions (FAQ)" web page,[17] recommend that it is clearest if one refers to "noon" or "12:00 noon" and "midnight" or "12:00 midnight" (rather than to "12:00 p.m." and "12:00 a.m.").

The Canadian Press Stylebook (11th Edition, 1999, page 288) says, "write noon or midnight, not 12 noon or 12 midnight." Phrases such as "12 a.m." and "12 p.m." are not mentioned at all.

The use of "12:00 midnight" or "midnight" is problematic because it does not distinguish between the midnight at the start of a particular day and the midnight at its end. To avoid confusion and error, some U.S. style guides recommend either clarifying "midnight" with other context clues, such as specifying the two dates between which it falls, or not referring to midnight at all. For an example of the latter method, "midnight" is replaced with "11:59 p.m." for the end of a day or "12:01 a.m." for the start of a day. That has become common in the United States in legal contracts and for airplanebus, or train schedules, though some schedules use other conventions.

The 24-hour clock notation avoids these ambiguities by using 00:00 for midnight at the start of the day and 12:00 for noon. From 23:59:59 the time shifts (one second later) to 00:00:00, the beginning of the next day. In 24-hour notation 24:00 can be used to refer to midnight at the end of a day.

In Britain, various conventions are employed. TV mag, "Sun" newspaper, London, 17 December 2005 uses "noon (12.00)" and "midnight (0.00)" in individual listings. Sequential listings start with a.m. or p.m. as appropriate, but these indicators are not used again, although in sub-listings "12midnight" is sometimes employed. The London Daily Telegraph uses "12.00noon" and "12.00midnight" in individual listings. In sequential listings the first programme to start after 12.00 is marked "am" or "pm" as appropriate.
