Donay, you can say "It's fifteen/ten/five minutes to/past midnight." But probably don't omit 'minutes' if you say it this way.
What time of day is 12AM. Is it midnight or midday?
I was talking with people at work about this, and not everyone agreed.
It suggests midnight to me, but I think that it is ambiguous.
12am is midnight
12pm is noon
I've always been taught that 12am is midnight, but I see now that both seem to be possible.
That was what I was always taught. Since you asked for evidence it seems that I have been misinformed all of these 40+ years. It seems that you can use either one for either time because of the definition of each. My vocabulary from now on will only use 12 noon and 12 midnight.
I think that midnight is neither AM or PM, but how do I argue with my digital alarm clock, which thinks that midnight is 12:00AM?
