1.) On a hot day, sunset means a break from the sun and its heat.
2.) They are awfully lovely, providing poetic inspiration to, well, lots of folks. (Including me – I totally WON a ribbon in the fourth grade for a poem I wrote about Sunsets. It included the phrases “billowing display” and “pastel flare.” This was not a participation ribbon; this was a WINNER RIBBON.)
3.) Due to their slow-moving nature, they are easy to photograph.
4.) Sunset means it’s almost bedtime – hooray! Except in the doldrums of winter, when it means that it’s almost dinnertime – also hooray!
5.) In some religions, fasting days end at sunset. Fat kids like me are totally up on when their friends can and cannot eat.
