Just havin' a bit 'o fun , but FYI:
- Yes, we (NZ) are the first country to see the sun and the new year, but like everything, people will debate, but we like to think (know) it’s us.
...and as for when the new millennium started, relax, how about we’re both right (again debateable) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennium . But while there was a lot of speculation about which country would be the first to see the sunrise on the new millennium, most people still had the date wrong. The Gregorian calendar starts with the year 1AD, so 2000 years passed as the clock ticked into 2001.The standard by which all World Time is set was agreed at the 1884 International Convention in Washington DC, with Greenwich, England established as the Prime Meridian (Zero Longitude).The third millennium officially started on 1st January 2001, at Greenwich -- Year 2000 was another good excuse for another millennium party, and we did (didn’t you?)
Now can we make nice? And I'll continue to embrace the fact that the nine decade run of championships will be maintained (as obviously insane as that may be ) with a win this year. I mean, why not! :thup:
