If I am someone who generally hates nighttime, which of these sentences can I say to express that idea?
- I hate nights.
- I hate night.
- I hate the night.
I am nearly completely sure that we can say, "I hate nights," but how about the other ones? I feel it would be wrong to use the article with "night" here while we could perhaps say "I hate the morning" or "I hate the afternoon". I am used to hearing "the night" when talking about a particular night instead of nights generally. "I hate night" also sounds like it might be wrong to me but I am on the fence. Which of these three sentences I provided can be used in your opinion?
Context: Say I am visiting a friend. When I am at his apartment, the night falls and I say one of the three sentences I gave to mean I generally hate nighttime.
