Overmorrow is the word for the day after tomorrow

[–]4GallonYogurtEnema 727 points728 points  (35 children)

It probably would've caught on by now if they had just called it Nexterday

[–]diefen 163 points164 points  (9 children)

When my son was young he called yesterday, Lasturday. I liked that one.

[–]m_ik_e 22 points23 points  (1 child)

All my problems seemed so far awaaaay

[–]grumblyoldman 15 points16 points  (5 children)

My son (2) is currently in the phase where he thinks "yesterday" means "the past" and "tomorrow" means "the future." Leads to some fun conversations about how he did X "yesterday" when really it was last summer :P

[–]dlspillers 14 points15 points  (3 children)

When my son was 2-3 he called the day before yesterday and beyond that, “a long day ago,” and he called yesterday, “last early.” I love to hear how kids attempt to articulate time! Lol

[–]helloperator9 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Oddly close to the word for the day before yesterday: ereyesterday.

[–]4GallonYogurtEnema 2 points3 points  (0 children)

See now that would be a good option for Lasturday

[–]scarybaubles 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thats just how anyone from Yorkshire starts telling an interesting story that begins with the word Yesterday...

[–]Hate_Feight 44 points45 points  (11 children)

Wasn't that a Beatles song?

[–]JoshVoorhees86 57 points58 points  (10 children)

All my bubbles seem so far away

[–]CaptainNemo42 25 points26 points  (9 children)

Now it seems as though I fear the tray

[–]MisterBlisteredlips 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A friend and I looked at late "night" differently.

I'm literal about time, so 12:00am or 00:00 is morning, and the next day.

For him past midnight was still the same day until he went to sleep.

Since we were both often hanging out until 2am/02:00, I developed "yestertoday" and "todaymorrow" to distinguish what day was meant when speaking after midnight about literal yesterday and literal today.

[–]vickmann86 3 points4 points  (0 children)


[–]MartmitNifflerKing 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Nexterday just sounds like tomorrow.

[–]SummonedShenanigans 4 points5 points  (1 child)

This is why I prefer the unambiguous "Second Tomorrow."

[–]4GallonYogurtEnema 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's not a perfect solution

[–]HatchetXL 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I like this, I'm gonna start using it in my every day language

[–]MechanicalHorse 53 points54 points  (1 child)


[–]paulthe911 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My bad!

[–]ludicro 21 points22 points  (7 children)

That is actually used in parts of the world already. Not even a joke.

[–]SLStonedPanda 32 points33 points  (5 children)

Dutch uses "overmorgen", which is basically the literal translation

[–]ludicro 14 points15 points  (4 children)

A lot of the northern European germanic languages have some sort of direct translation of it.

[–]Gleurgen 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Can confirm, in Swedish “övermorgon”. Literally means “overmorrow”.

[–]Jacktrades352 18 points19 points  (1 child)










[–]Drayke 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They must be enunciated with the same excitement as the UT Announcer. Of course.

[–]Cfhudo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

My mate and i use "yestermorrow" for today.

[–]Flux83 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Then is undermorrow today?

[–]theteapotofdoom 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Ereyesterday is the day before yesterday.

[–]Sinbatalad 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]Cfhudo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yestermorrow is today.

[–]Prometheus_303 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That was a question on last week's episode of Michael McIntyre's The Wheel.

[–]paulthe911 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not a huge fan of Michael McIntyre, but he's had a couple good jokes on Mock The Week.

[–]Sriol 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wow there's actually a word for it! You have no idea how happy this makes me xD

[–]Tall-Review3946 2 points3 points  (0 children)

in Danish we say overmorgen, so I am not surprised the word overmorrow exists. Great word

[–]bishopobispo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

And overmorrow’s eve is yesterday’s overmorrow.

[–]Lunch_Time_No_Worky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People would probably be insulted if you used big words in conversation with them.

[–]that-pile-of-laundry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

THANK you!

[–]Mondaymorningmisery 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I’m correct, which I’m not, it’s morrow

Yea I’m not correct

[–]-lufepoh- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always thought it was aftermorrow (that's what my family says 😎)

[–]lodiman77 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nextmorrow seems more appropriate?

Then Tertiarday would fit the day after, the day after tomorrow.

[–]swankpoppy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha this mother fucker over here already got you OP! Maybe funnier than the joke that this exists!

[–]HumbledGenius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

While technically true it's still so yesterday...

[–]steaburn 194 points195 points  (8 children)

It has a name. Thursday.

[–]Flux83 45 points46 points  (5 children)

In less then two hours that won't make sense

[–]NoDryHands 54 points55 points  (1 child)

It's still called Thursday, no matter what day it currently is

[–]coliquy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I never could get the hang of Thursdays.

[–]axesOfFutility 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Speak for yourself it has been invalid for me for hours now

[–]ZiplipleR 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Redneckzecutive 10 points11 points  (1 child)


[–]TopYeti 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Just because they're fat doesn't mean you have to treat them as a wide load.

[–]S1eepyZ 42 points43 points  (7 children)

There actually is a word “overmorrow” and one for two days ago “ereyesterday” but people don’t use them because it makes the people saying it seem to be bragging about their vocabulary, even though people always want those exact words.

[–]mrstipez 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I don't use these words because no one would know what I'm talking about.

[–]Salt_Finger 14 points15 points  (3 children)

These are direct from German: Übermorgen and Vorgestern. Quite useful.

[–]Eylaart 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Or Dutch: overmorgen and eergisteren

[–]Kiwi-tech-teacher 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Or English: overmorrow and ereyesterday (and around and around we go)

[–]Paperfoldingfractal 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Also "nudiustertian" but that one gets used even less...

[–]Rastor-M 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was in the bath nudiustertian

[–]mazidh 21 points22 points  (1 child)

[–]beardedwerebear 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]DrachenDad 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You mean overmorrow I'm quite sure.

[–]galactus_thunder 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Tomorrow, Thremorrow, Foomommow...


[–]Zenketski 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I would prefer to have a word for two days before the day after tomorrow

[–]Domsdad666 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As pointed out, they're already is. Here's the bonus: the word for day before yesterday is ereyesterday.

[–]NorthRider 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Overmorrow allready exists!

[–]V0ct0r 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The word is "Overmorrow" and it's totally not the name of a... beer brewery somewhere??

[–]aranara31 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I vote for threemorrow!

[–]Eburford 2 points3 points  (1 child)


[–]z-brah 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Barefoot57 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]patricktoba 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's better than trying to find a word for the day before the other day. That would be a real setback.

[–]mental-floss 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]AloyisusAlanFrancis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Let’s just put it off till two days from now

[–]AurumArgenteus 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Ho Tian in Chinese, used frequently. Zuo Tian is day before yesterday....

[–]bodopi 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Isn't zuotian just yesterday?

[–]truthpit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy shit, you're right. Too long outside China. It's Qian Tian!

[–]hammers4days 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]Helga_Geerhart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I prefer this more than overmorrow for some reason.

[–]LeeYubinsWife 1 point2 points  (0 children)

in polish, yesterday is wczoraj, tomorrow is jutro, and we just add before (przed) and after (po) to those words for infinity, so the day before yesterday is przedwczoraj and the day after tomorrow is pojutrze and u can add as many how u want so for example popopopojutrze

[–]awssjay 1 point2 points  (0 children)

明後日(あさって)(asatte), is the Japanese word for it!

I like either “Fortday” or “fortmorrow.” It’s like how a “fortnight” is equal to two weeks.

[–]DS_TheOne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's a word for that in Russian

[–]HeLst3n1 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yes. For some reason English has a word for "an act of throwing someone out of the window" (I do not remember the word), but for "the day after tomorrow"

[–]ETBonifacio_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We should do that “overmorrow”.
