The beginning of time

Why do the days change from one to the other at midnight? This has never made any sense to me. New days should begin at the beginning - when the sun comes up.

In spite of the fact that the sun rises at a different time each day I think we could agree that 6 a.m. is a pretty reasonable average time for the beginning of the day. This is when the day should begin. And, of-course, end at 5:59 a.m

This way when things happened at one, two, or three a.m. it would be considered late at night and not early in the morning - which seems so much more logical to me.

And just to make things interesting we could change the faces of all our clocks so that 6 would be at the top. (For the few clocks left that actually have faces.) Wouldn’t that be fun?

Just a thought

Yup, this clock makes a lot more sense. I've always wondered this very same thing!
