Since I usually have this one wrong, I'll attempt an answer and wait for somebody to correct me.
Good morning: from dawn to midday
Good afternoon: from midday to sunset or sixish [that would be around 6:00 pm]
Good evening: from sunset [or sixish] to bedtime
As I said previously, I often had it wrong. When I was staying in the UK, I often caught myself saying "good morning" at 1-2 pm because where I live it works quite differently. Needless to say, sometimes I received a look of disapproval. , so wait for a native's confirmation, ok?
TanitGood morning: from dawn to middayThese definitions sound entirely reasonable to me.
How about "good night"?
Six is a reasonable dividing line, if the sun is still up.
I think till 12 Noon is Good Morning
and 12- 4Pm is Good After noon
after 4 Pm is Good Evening.
4 pm is too early for "good evening," even in the winter. The prior suggestion of 6 pm is reasonable.
