Tomorrow
The date
Tomorrow is between Sunday, 17 December 2017 and Monday, 18 December 2017, subject to local timezone.

Tomorrow is a temporal construct of the relative future;[1] literally of the day after the current day (today), or figuratively of future periods or times. Tomorrow is usually considered just beyond the present and counter to yesterday. It is important in time perception because it is the first direction the arrow of time takes humans on Earth.

Philosophy

The use of terms such as tomorrow, now and future are part an a-series view which is part of the presentism philosophy of time.[2]

The concept of "tomorrow" is rarely understood by 3-year-old children, but 4 year olds understand the idea.[3]
