Yeah... the convention is that 12am is midnight, while 12pm is midday. Since am means before noon and pm means after noon, neither 12am nor 12pm actually exists
What?

11:59am is a time.

12:01pm is a time.

How does 12pm not exist?

What Sid said :). As 12 is the meridiem by which before and after the meridiem is decided, 12 midday is neither post nor ante meridiem, but IS the meridiem. I was wrong to say 12 AM doesn't exist though! I'm glad to know I got the right time for the event. Thank you!

Given the venue I'm going to need period formal wear. Any suggestions? So what DID the smart set wear in the Rococo period? Dare I get fashion advice from Ben Franklin and William Blake? Must I lift my voice in a lusty rendition of "Oh Anacreon in Heaven" if I become plonked and show my Irish? And must I waste my time scanning the broadsheets for juicy gossip on Lord Byron's latest scandal so I'll have something to talk about? Well I hope I can manage La Bell Danse, I'm just hopeless at the pas de bourree, let alone pas de rigaudon! Enquiring early post-enlightment minds want to know!

I'll be there right after the blessing - I never could stand for Church Latin. I do so hope the French Ambassador shows up!

I was able to find a suitable dress in my inventory. It was so nice seeing all those faces there at the party, and the venue was beautiful. And, even more amazing, I didn't crash even once!

Looking forward to our next get-together.

am = ante meridies
pm= post meridies
so 12 am equals 12 pm, noon is meridies aka. 12 m
So it's the same issue as when the new millenium started, 2000 or 2001.

I didn't care. I partied twice.
