I can't remember either but just to be pedantic, the millennium started on Jan 1st 2001 as there wasn't a year 0 and the years of AD are calculated back to year 1. If the millennium started on 01/01/2000 then the 20th century only had 99 years as they celebrated the start of that century on 01/01/1901.

LOL ;-)

Wasn't there multiple changes of how we calculated the calender?  I seem to recall the last change in the 1800s was adopted by most nations but not Russia, so the October revolution was in November by their calender.

Therefore under the calender used originally we might be in the next millenium in the modern calenders year 2000, or maybe even earlier.

There was no change of calendar in the 20th century and the world celebrated the new milennium on 01/01/1901 not 01/01/1900. There were actual celebrations, so therefore in order to allow the 20th centrury to have the correct number of years (i.e. 100), it ended at midnight on December 31st 2000.

Am I a pedant or what?
