Is middag the midday meal or evening meal? I say this because there is some difference in areas and social background in English in meal names eg breakfast/lunch/dinner (dinner being evening meal) or breakfast/dinner/tea (dinner being midday meal). So which is middag in Norwegian? It sounds as though it should be the midday meal.

Traditionally it was the midday meal, hence the name. Nowadays it's the evening meal, typically eaten at around 5-7 pm, after people get home from work.
