    First year of the new decade

    for example 1999 was the last year of the decade/century and 2000 was the first year of new decade
    so 2009 is the last year of the current decade while 2010 will be the first year of new decade

    We started at 0 AD, so every new era's date must end with what we started with and thats a "0"

    Sorry doozer, but you need to read what I said again, the begining of every NEW era must end with a zero, so 1990 would be the begining of the 90's as it ends with a zero

    That's actually incorrect Anon. The first year of the Christian era was 1 AD and it was preceded by the last year before the Christian era 1 BC. Unlike a mathematical number sequence, there was no year 0.

    If a decade is 10 years, a century 100 and a millennium 1000, then the first decade of the Christian era was 1 AD to 10 AD incl., the first century 1 AD to 100 AD incl. and the first millennium 1 AD to 1000 AD incl. However as many historians seem to think that the correct year of Christ's birth was 6 BC, we are therefore dealing with a totally arbitrary dating system introduced hundreds of years ago and based on a miscalculation of a person's birth year.

    Be that as it may, according to the Christian chronology, the second millennium ended on 31st December 2000 and the third one began the following day......all the fireworks were basically a year early. The current decade thus includes 2010.

    Jews, Muslims and those who like to date the earth scientifically from the time of it's creation or from the Big Bang would of course quote different figures.

    Personally, I have my own little system dating system...........BCM and ACM.
