Is 2019 the last year of the decade?
2019 is not the end of the decade, 2020 is. The first decade went from Year 1 to Year 10, and so it progressed. There was no Year 0 – we went straight from 1 BC to 1 AD.
Is 2020 the end of the decade?
Some say this decade ends on December 31, 2019, and the start of the new one begins January 1, 2020. For others, the new decade doesn’t start until January 1, 2021; the old one concluding on December 31, 2020.
What does the end of our decade mean?
By that same logic, the first decade in the calendar was complete at the end of 10 CE, or 10 AD. Which means, according to the Farmers’ Almanac, that the end of this decade is December 31, 2020, not December 31, 2019.
Is this end of decade?
In a recent YouGov survey, 64% of Americans said the next decade will begin on Jan. 1, 2020, and end on Dec. 31, 2029. But others say that because people use the term “decades” to discuss culture and chunks of history, it should run from 0 to 9.
