Re: Millennium Celebration

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

Celebrating the millenium in any way on Jan. 1, 2000, will be one year early.

The new millenium begins on Jan. 1, 2001.  The first year was 1, not 0.
The second millenium thus began 1000 years later, on the first day of 1001.
The third millenium will begin on the first day of 2001.

But I guess it is futile to remind people of this.  Everyone is convinced
that 2000 begins the new millenium, just as 99 years ago, 1900 was widely
celebrated as the first year of the new century.  It wasn't; 1901 was.
