I'm not stupid. I'll be partying along with the rest of the world tonight.
As a Christian, I use the Gregorian calendar. Thus, for me (and most of the
civilized world [follow the link]), the third millennium begins on
2001-01-01. Do you use the astronomical calendar or the common era calendar?
If you do, then "Happy Third Millennium", otherwise, "Happy New Year". I
know that you are not stupid and that you have a keen understanding of the
way calendars work. Most people don't and they just believe what they hear
on TV. THEY are morons.
