New Millenium?

Well, the year 2000 has hit some parts of the world, and they haven’t exploded yet, so that’s a good sign. But, what really surprises me is the mass acceptance of the year 2000 as the beginning of the new millenium. As far as I know, it’s still technically not the beginning of the new millenium until 2001, and yet I see major news organizations are reporting it as the new millenium. Have they given in and jumped on the bandwagon of the ‘Commercial Millenium’ created by organizations and businesses who want to cash in on this event. What happens next new year? Will everyone say, “Oops, now it’s the new millenium! Come buy more millenium stuff!” I don’t know. I guess there’s a fine line between who’s actually correct anyway. Society, and its masses of millions of people who believe we’re entering a new millenium, or the people who created the time system and terminology that says the new millenium doesn’t start for another year. Whatever the case may be, it’s now time for me to grab my Millenium Party Kit and head over to my special Millenium Suite so I can drink my Millenium Wine and watch the special New Millenium Broadcast on FOX as I enter the ‘new millenium’ in style.


Oh yeah, and Happy New Year everyone. Be safe and have fun.
