Try something like:
time_t now;
struct tm *time_struct;
char day_str[20];
char time_str[20];

now = time(NULL);
time_struct = mktime(&now);

strftime(day_str, 20, "%a", time_struct);
strftime(time_str, 20, "%H:%M:%S", time_struct);

if(time_struct->
tm_hour > 18 && time_struct->tm_hour < 22)
{
printf("Good evening, today is %s in year %d, it is the %d day of the year, time now is %s", day_str, time_struct->tm_year, time_struct->yday, time_str);
}
else if(time_struct->
tm_hour > 4 && time_struct->
tm_hour < 8)
{
printf("Good morning, today is %s in year %d, it is the %d day of the year, time now is %s", day_str, time_struct->tm_year, time_struct->yday, time_str);
}

Note, this doesn't give you the number of days remaing.  To do this, you need to figure out the number of days in the year and subtract time_struct->yday from that.  Hope this helps.
