The new decade starts next year. The first decade started with year 1, not year 0.

I realize some people agree with your version...I was always taught like years 0-9 was the first century, years 10-19 was the second century, and so forth.  The 20th century was from 1900 thru 1999 and the 21st century (which we're in now) is from 2000 thru 2099.


So there is confusion..but I think most count decades like this:


The 2020s (pronounced "twenty-twenties" or "two-thousand-(and)-twenties"; shortened to the '20s[1][2]) is the current decade in the Gregorian calendar that began on 1 January 2020 and will end on 31 December 2029.

I was taught a lot of things as a child. Then I began to use logic to figure things out for myself. Logic tells me there was no year 0. The first year was year 1. There was also no day 0. The first day was day 1 Think about it.

Logic tells us to look at when a race starts..it always starts at zero until someone crosses the finish line.


The same logic applies to a calendar.  It's not year 1 until the end, or 365.25 days later.


In astronomy, for the year AD 1 and later it is common to assign the same numbers as the Anno Domini notation, which in turn is numerically equivalent to the Common Era notation. But the discontinuity between 1 AD and 1 BC makes it cumbersome to compare ancient and modern dates. So the year before 1 AD is designated 0, the year before 0 is −1, and so on.

You're right..the only point I was trying to make is that the number zero has to be used in any time events or calendars.  It has to be used or calculations of time will not be correct.


For example:  The moment of your birth, were you 1 day old?  Were you 1 year old?  Of course not..24 hours after birth you were 1 day old and 365 days after birth you are 1 year old.


Our calendar is based on the birth of Christ..in the beginning of this calendar they quickly learned that if the number zero was not used the calendar would always be incorrect..to make it work they used zero to mark the birth of Christ..then his first year on earth became AD-1.


In time calculations the number zero simply says this is the "Start" of something...

If year 1 was only year 1 when it ended, then the same is true of 10, 20 etc. I rest my case.

 I wonder if there is anything y'all won't argue about? :)

That's good..it's a simple concept to keep counting calendar events accurately..It started out as AD-0 and became AD-1 365 days later.


Just like the year before the birth is BC-1 because that year was completed before the birth.☺☺☺


The number zero is used to indicate that this is the "Beginning" of an event, so the zero, like the one in 2020, says this is the "beginning" of a new decade.  we hailed the year 2000 as the beginning of a new millennium.


2000 (MM) was a century leap year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2000th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 1000th and last year of the 2nd millennium, the 100th and last year of the 20th century, and the 1st year of the 2000s decade.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The 2020s (pronounced "twenty-twenties"; shortened to the '20s[1][2]) is the current decade in the Gregorian calendar that began on 1 January 2020 and will end on 31 December 2029.
