It's the last day of 2009, the last day of the year, and the last day of the DECADE! But this year we have a problem — what to call this decade?
The years 1980-1989 are called the Eighties. The years 1990-1999 are called the Nineties. So we can say, "I like Eighties music." or "I was born in the Nineties." But what about this decade that's almost over? How are you going to say that you like the music from this decade? or whatever from this decade!
What should we call the years 2000-2009? Give me your ideas in the Comments.
