When does Sunday begin?
#1
In the West the official start of the day is 12 midnight.
In the experience of many it starts when they wake up at, say, 7 AM.
In Old Testament times the day started when the sun set on the 'previous' day, e.g. Friday started when the sun set on Thursday.

What's the universal Church's take on this? Does she consider Sunday to start on what is normally considered Sunday evening? Which sounds logical to me given the fact that when necessary you can fulfill your Sunday obligation on Saturday evening (and not on Monday morning.)

On the other hand the Church does not instruct us to refrain from servile work on Saturday evening.
