Where did the idea of midnight to midnight come from? I believe that sunrise to sundown is a much better system. You are awake when it is light outside, and when it is dark you go to sleep. This is also God's way of counting days, and I think that it is better than the midnight system in terms of practicality, and more useful when we don't have a clock, and there were no clocks back then, I think. Just some of my thoughts on the subject. What are yours? Which system do you think is better?
