Special Creation is generally understood to have encompassed a series of creative events spanning six days, as described in the Bible book of Genesis. Each of the six days of creation begins with evening, then progresses to daylight. This is in keeping with the biblical day which always begins at sunset.

First Day Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. Genesis 1:3-5 (NKJV)
