"Well, heh, I don't think they mean it in a "Your star burns!" kind of way. It's an expression that means something like "you're wasting time!" Sort of how Goblins say "Time is money." Hurry up, don't dilly dally, that sort of thing."Or maybe they have theorized how the sun is actually a nig nurning ball of hydrogen and stuffs. and thus the Daylight is in fact burning :P

The sun, a giant ball of burning gases? What a ridiculous idea.

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas, kinda like a gigantic nuclear furnace where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees.

Pretty sure Gnomes say 'Daylight's burning.' as a greeting because they lived in Gnomeregan until recently.. a subterranean city. Without their signature goggles, the sunlight would indeed be painful for some!

"Daylight's burning." That's not just a gnome greeting. People in the real world use it all the time. It just means that you should hurry because daytime doesn't last forever, you only have so much time - like how a candle burns but eventually goes out.

It's mostly used by people who work outside with no artificial light. They only have so long to work before daylight is gone and they have to stop for the day.
