  • You are expected to show evidence of your own research. Please take the site tour. – Mick Nov 28 '16 at 13:32
  • I am sorry but I did some research and googling but didn't found anything which satisfies my curiosity. So asked here – NetMaster Nov 28 '16 at 13:33
  • Do you mean "Bright Day after the Darkest Night" figuratively? – J. Siebeneichler Nov 28 '16 at 13:34
  • @J.Siebeneichler Yes if possible and if that exist in this beautiful language called English :) – NetMaster Nov 28 '16 at 13:36

The Enlightenment was a period that followed the "dark" ages. It was named to capture the idea that the tools of science and reason were illuminating the dark times of authoritarianism and dogma. It's probably the closest single word that captures the concept you are interested in.

  • This one is also pretty interesting – NetMaster Nov 30 '16 at 13:53

There is no single word for a bright day after an extraordinarily, or regular, dark night. You will have to illustrate the idea in a sentence. You could use some of the synonyms for "dawn" to help you craft the sentence. Thesaurus.com lists many synonyms for "dawn" at the following URL: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/dawn

  • I am asking for bit more help can you please suggest one phrase using this synonyms. :D – NetMaster Nov 28 '16 at 13:58
  • There is the (very well-known) phrase "the dawning of the day", taken from two Irish folk songs with the same name. "And the morning light was shining bright at the dawning of the day." – Mick Nov 28 '16 at 14:22
  • @Mick although the day dawns just as much even if the night was barely dark at all. – Spagirl Nov 28 '16 at 14:38
  • @Spagirl This is true, but I can think of nothing better. – Mick Nov 28 '16 at 14:40
  • @Mick. I should have :-)ed. I think the problem is that the questioner is not much wiling to accept that there isn't a shorter, snappier way to express their concept, and they haven't told us why their own researches haven't satisfied their 'curiosity'. For all I know there is such a word, but I probably wouldn't know what it meant if I met it in the wild. – Spagirl Nov 28 '16 at 14:48
