I will be ready to wish everybody a happy new decade in
precisely one year from now. The actual fact is that the
new decade (the 2020's) does not scientifically start until
12:00 AM January 1, 2021. The simple fact is that there is
nor has there ever been a year zero. Therefore, when you
begin numbering years, it is just as if you are counting any
object such as dollars, chickens or daffodils. You don't
have ten of them until you actually have ten in hand.
Arthur C. Clark the author of 2001 A Space Odyssey predicted
this in his 1968 novel of the same name, written
concurrently with the production of Stanley Kubrick's movie
In that book, Clark projects that people would celebrate the
turn of the millennium on January 1, 2000 rather than when
it should be celebrated on January 1, 2001. This prediction
came true--exactly as Clark described it.
So it is with this idea of the beginning of a decade. So
long story short: the decade ain't over until it's over on
January 1, 2001.
