Our clocks and watches are set to what we can call civil time, designed to follow the Sun. We call the average time between noon and noon, one day, and divide that period into 24 equal hours. It takes roughly 365.25days for the earth to revolve around the sun in order to keep the calendar in phase with the seasons, we add a leap day every fourth year.
It is this version of time that is embedded most deeply into our brains because we use it every day. So therefore, we find it a good idea to include and use civil time in observing plans, programs and events because our brains which doesn’t function well at night is able to check time, or events occurring by 5AM simply against our watches or the bedside table clock
