I guess it should be either MIDDAY (NOON) (in this case) or MIDNIGHT!!!. Never gave it much thought.

Sudden, this is not primary school where we accept information or misinformation without query. At the end of 11:59:59, are all the hours, minutes and seconds for one day complete?

there are reasons why 1200 hrs military time is called midday or noon and 2400 hrs is called midnight.

it is only recently that i see 12pm and then designating it as midday or noon. have you ever seen 12am?

If all the hours, minutes and seconds are completed. Then the next second is a new day. To me that seems more logical because the other way we will have two days sharing the same time. Actually 12am might truly exist and midnight might just be a general term.

In reply to methodic But, isn't the day only completed on the stroke of 12?! If so, isn't it only a nanosecond after 12 before one can say new day has begun hence 12:01 am or 12:1nanosec pm?

Convention
When one entity ends, another begins

There is no first day of the week nor is there a first month of the year. Time was invented for man, not man invented for ‘toime’.
