|Subject: What will they call the new decade? Thu Dec 31, 2009 7:52 am|| |
Im wondering what they will call this new decade we are about to enter?
This last decade has been officially labeled the Noughties in the UK but that term didn't really get used until the second half of the decade and will be used more in hindsight looking back at the last ten years i reckon.
So has anyone got any ideas regarding how this new decade will be named?
My Girlfriend seems to think they will call it the Teens.
Its crazy to think that after these ten years have passed we will hit the twenties, thirtys and so on.

I agree with your girlfriend. I think the teens because the tens sounds to harsh. Funny how the noughties and the teens are so much harder to get your head round than every other year the 30's, 40's, 50's etc are easy

I reckon the tens. The teens sorta ignores 1/3 of the decade! Sounds odd, but not as odd as the noughties.
