What is the most common time to have lunch or dinner in your country? and what do you personally do? Do you rather have a big lunch and no dinner, or the other way round?

In Spain we have lunch when other people have dinner, jeje, we eat from 2pm to 5 pm

We have dinner from 21.30 to 23.30 pm. But you can often see people in the restaurants as late as 1 am.

Si podéis contestar en español muuuuucho mejor grin

In Los Estados Unidos, people tend to eat breakfast on the run, at least during the work week. On the weekends we might have a more formal breakfast of eggs or pancakes.

Lunch is usually a salad or sandwich around 12 noon. Dinner for most Americans is usually the biggest meal, which we have around 5 or 6PM.

Of course this varies with each person and sometimes it depends on the region of the country you live in.

We also tend to eat a few too many snacks. And of course there is the latest craze, which is stopping at Starbucks several times a week for our specialty coffees. Although I have seen some Starbucks popping up in other countries I've been to. Is that an American habit or is it becoming more of a global phenomenon?

Estoy de acuerdo con Nicole. Almorzamos a las 12:00, más o menos, y comemos una cena grande a las cinco o seis. Aqui los restaurantes no estan abiertos a la medianoche.

En alemania, comemos desayuno a las 7 de la mañana. Por lo general, almorzamos al mediodía y cenamos entre las seis y las ocho de la tarde.
