Yup, and you also know what all of society is referring to when they mention the new decade, and 2021 ain't it

Yup. The 80s didn't start in 1981.

HAPPY NEW DECADE, everybody! Here's the jan plan: https://www.patreon.com/posts/coming-soon-in-32820901
Goof! The Decade starts in 2021!
Actually the beginning of every single year is the beginning of a new decade, since it's a completely arbitrary unit of time
That's a fallacy, you know that's not what people are referring to when they mention the Decade!!
Right, as pointed out above, when someone references the 90's decade, they mean 90-99.

It's a lot easier to call the "20's" a decade ending with twenty nine instead of thirty. Also, if the calendar is based on 1 year after Christ, then you'd think there should be a year zero. Either way, it's easier for everyone to just pretend there's a year 0 so the numbers make more sense.

I am perfectly happy with the idea that the tens-spot rollover marks the beginning of a new decade.

When a child is "1," they are not starting their first year, they're ending it. A child who is thirteen months is "1" but is actually not STARTING their first year, they've ended it.

When they're 120 months, they've finished their first decade. They are a decade old. And they are 10. The zero roll over is the start of the next decade.

The fact that no-one used the phrase "year zero" doesn't mean there shouldn't have been one.
