    Did you know 178 years is 64,970 days?
    I did not know that! I'll share that with my family though.

        ... ten years , counted one through ten. You're not done with the decade until you're done counting through ten.

        A century is one hundred years, one through one hundred. Same thing, you're not done with the century until you're done with one hundred.

        Milennium is the same drill; gotta get through one thousand.

        Now this is math I can do!

            If I could edit my last post I would change the "one" to "won"

                I'm pretty sure that is 10 years...

                  the common practice is that the millennium starts 2001 but the decade runs 2000-2009

                    :go:
                    ... you counted the following years:
                    • one=2000 (ending in zero)
                      two=2001 (ending in one)
                      three=2002 (ending in two)
                      four=2003 (ending in three)
                      five=2004 (ending in four)
                      six=2005 (ending in five)
                      seven=2006 (ending in six)
                      eight=2007 (ending in seven)
                      nine=2008 (ending in eight)
                      ten=2009 (ending in nine)


                    You counted zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine.

                    We didn't get to 2010 by starting with zero. We started with one, as in the year AD 1.

                        Your last one is Jan. 1, 2009 to Jan. 1, 2010 is the year 2009.

                        You are starting with zero. Counting decades, centuries or millennia always start with a number ending in one and end with a number ending in zero.

                        You don't start counting with zero.

                          Although any period of ten years is a decade, a convenient and frequently referenced interval is based on the tens digit of the calendar year, as in using 1960s to represent the decade from 1960 to 1969. Often, for brevity, only the tens part is mentioned (60s or sixties), although this may leave it uncertain which century is meant. These references are frequently used to encapsulate pop culture or other widespread phenomena that dominated such a decade, as in The Great Depression of the 1930s. For example, the decade commonly referred to as the "two thousands" ended on December 31, 2009.

                          Some writers like to point out that since the common calendar starts from the year 1, its first full decade contained the years from 1 to 10, the second decade from 11 to 20, and so on. The interval from the year 2001 to 2010 could thus be called the 201st decade, using ordinal numbers. However, contrary to practices in referencing centuries, ordinal references to decades are quite uncommon.
