Creation Days

Question: What does it mean when it says, then there was evening and then there was morning, why does it say this for each day?

Answer: We as Americans think of a day as being a morning and an evening, but the Jews think of a day as an evening and a morning. The significance in Genesis 1 is that it is defining each of the days of the Creation week as a 24 hour day. The Jews as a result to this day start their day at 6PM not 12AM like we do.
