HNY! But Is 2020 the Beginning of a New Decade? Nope!

in #lifestyle10 months ago (edited)

I wonder why so many people and media houses are counting 2020 as a beginning of some new decade and wrapping up whole decade in their news!

Are you also thinking that a new decade starts with 2020 AD?

No, if you know how to count then you will realize that you're a year too early for it!

It's because of that silly nothing called zero!

Yes, 0.

Called as shoonya in Sanskrit, it is said to be invented in India. Romans didn't know of zero.

So in their calendar, do you know what date follows 31st December, 0001 BC?
It's 1st January, 0001 AD.

Because there is no year 0000 in existence.

So when was the first decade in AD completed? Obviously after 10 years and that was on 31st December, 0010 AD. And next decade started on 1st January, 0011 AD.

If you keep counting like this, you will come to realize that a new decade will start on 1st January, 2021.

It's certainly not today.

But Happy New Year to you anyway!
'Coz, it's a new year for sure, today! 😊
