    This is quite subtle, but this explanation may help you : http://french.about.com/od/vocabulary/a/an-annee-jour-journee-matin-matinee-soir-soiree.htm

    un jour and une journée both mean, but the difference is :
    The word "jour" indicates the 24 hour period.
    The word "journée", It does not specifically comprises a 24 hour period.
