He wrote: ‘I will get hate for this but it must be said — 7.30 is such a classic dinner time.

‘6.30 too early gives “I have another thing after this.” 8.30 too late, gives “can say I have early morning obligation” if I’m not having fun. 7.30 is prime dinner real estate. love a 7:30.’

The post was flooded with comments from some who deemed the dinner time too early or too late sparking a debate. 

One person wrote: ‘Nooooo I need to be finished with any type of obligation like… right after work. I need to eat at 5 so I can be a piece of s*** for the rest of the night without care or worry.’

Another added: ‘Honestly same and I’m sick of pretending later dinner is better. I want to be in bed in my pyjamas watching TV by myself by 7.’

Some parents chimed in, with one mother saying: ‘In our home it’s dinner 6pm. Little kids baths 7pm. Put little kids to bed 7:30. 

‘Hang out with big kids until 8.30 or drive the to sports practices. Big kids shower at 9.00. 

‘We are all in bed by 9.30/10. Up at 6.30 to leave at 7.25 for school. It works for the kids.’

Adding fuel to the fire Caleb tweeted again saying: ‘The hate in the comments is already piling up. ‘i have kids’, ‘i prefer early dinner’, etc. folks, it’s not a debate. 7.30 dinner is bliss.’   

Many social media users from around the world shared how different cultures have different dinner rules. 

One person said: ‘We are of East Indian origin. We have dinner at 10pm lol!’

Another wrote: ‘Living in a country where our ideal dinner time is 9pm, I always wonder what you guys do after dinner before going to sleep. Don’t you get hungry at 10 or 11pm’. 

While someone else said: ‘Spanish traditions are so different… In Spain I don’t know a single person who gets dinner before 9, I usually do 9:30 or so. Lunch time at 3 pm and dinner at 9 pm is our way to go.’
