Talk:eleventh hour

Is it correct to include in the usage that technically, since thee are twelve hours in half a day, an action left until the last minute occurs on the twelfth hour, not the eleventh? That is, since the first hour past noon occurs between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM, the Eleventh hour actually occurs between 10:00 PM and 11:00 PM, and the last hour is the twelfth hour, between 11:00 PM and midnight —This unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 00:56, 5 October 2010.
