  2. While "this night" is not usually used today, it is still a phrase used for emphasis, especially in religious rites or old books.

    Example: During one Jewish holiday, the youngest child says, "Why is this night different from all other nights." The phrase is emphasizing that it is this special night that is important. Using the more familiar, tonight, wouldn't have the same impact.

    "Yesterday evening" is another old phrasing that isn't used today.
