HOODS?

Hi all, when I buy a new lens it always comes with a hood. Now, excuse my ignorance, but when exactly do you use the hood? Is it when there’s really bright sunlight, or when you’re pointing towards the light, or what??

Thanks

ps I’m asking this as I have ordered a new 80-400mm lens and I think it comes with a gigantic hood..!
