What does ‘an early night’ mean?

I am not going to take much of your time today. I know how busy you guys must have been recently. In fact, I know that this is the time of the year when people take a break from their, say, academic obligations. Yes, we are all on vacation! Great!

I am going straight to the point, then.


I think I will get an early night.

What does ‘an early night’ mean?
Well, in case you haven’t figure it out, I will provide you with some more examples:

Hey John, I think you need an early night.
I’ve had a hell of a day, and all I want is an early night.

Meaning: if you have an early night, you go to bed earlier than usual.
Are you able to write more sentences using ‘an early night’?

Now that you know the meaning of ‘an early night’, I would like to remind you that the opposite of this expression is ‘a late night’ as in I think I’ll have a late night.

See you guys around!
