Subject: Do you think that a bigger deal will be made out of the decade change in 2020?

Written By: bchris02 on 07/31/18 at 12:27 am

One of the things that struck me as odd back in 2009 rolling into 2010 is that nobody was talking about the fact that it was a new decade.  I remember how big of a deal the year 2000 was and even a decade earlier, a big deal was made out of the fact that it was then the '90s.  2009 going into 2010 though was different.  There were some articles that acknowledged it but for the most part, the '00s went out with a whimper.  Why do you think that is and do you think a bigger deal will be made out of the decade change going into 2020?

It could be because there's no name for the '10s that rolls off the tongue as easily. Also, ringing in the year 2000 and the year 1990 (last decade of the 20th century) are more noteworthy than ringing in the year 2010, I guess.  ::)

There was more of a bigger deal of the 2000s ending in 2008 before 2009 even hit due to the economy crashing and stores closing and shows ending, electro pop debuting etc.
By the time 2009 came it already felt like the new decade came Obama being elected was like the cap on the 2000's.

2009 just so happened to be the next year chronologically in the 2000s decade but it was more 2010 beta

You make a good point here.  2008 was the year that everyone was talking about "the end of an era" and "the decade from hell."  I think this is why the perception of '10s culture beginning in 2008 is so pervasive even though looking back, 2008 and 2009 for that matter were much more '00s than they are given credit for.

I don't know if you would agree with me, but I think that 2011 was the last year that felt more 2000's than 2010's.

I would agree.  I think 2012 was the year that the '00s died completely and the '10s identity became more established.  A lot of people disagree though.

2000 wasn't just a new decade. It was a new millennium. The anticipation and stresses of those come every 1000 years. I think for most people, people put that "decade turning anticipation" in Obama because 2002-2007 was just so associated with Bush and the War on Terror.

2011 had a leftover  y2k ish  neo vibe to it like 2010 did  but it did not feel like 2000s at all
And when I say y2k neovibe I mean a vibe that felt like the early 2000s did  (not in music or fashion) just the energy



A good majority of 2011 felt nothing like the previous decade tho, just little speckles

I would say 2010 and 2011 still had leftover late 2000s culture.  I mean, 2011 was nothing like 2005 but it wasn't far off from 2008 or 2009.

I think so. People seem to be more "decade-concious" than before. I've heard newspapers say "early 2010s" before in a business context. I never remember hearing "early 2000s", I don't even think people saw the 2000s as a decade as much as they saw it as a new century/millennium.

I could see it happening. I think the main reason why people weren't as excited for 2010 is that it was overshadowed by the recession then.

I think just merely because the year of 2020 sounds very cool and futuristic. It’s very similar to the anticipation for the year of 2000 in that regard. 2010, just sounded bland in comparison. Not to mention that the years of 2008 & 2009 brought out more societal change than the year 2010 ever did. Just the election of Obama & the start of the Great Recession made Late 2008/2009 seem worlds apart from the conservative post 9/11 world of the Early 2000s, let alone the pre 9/11’Y2K Era of the VERY Late 90s & early 00s.

2020 is also an election year, so you could bet that’s it’s going to be pretty hectic.

Yeah, "Twenty - Twenty" sounds catchy for people and being in the "Twenties" (as well as having 20s Kids) sounds like a cool thing for people. There is already anticipation for the '20s right now.

*Some say that trap metal is starting to rise this year.
*Aviator eyeglasses seem to have made a comeback this year (or very late 2017, but I did not really see them in large proportions until 2018).

Starbucks was a fad in the 2000s.  In the '10s, Starbucks has basically become the McDonalds of coffee while local independently-owned coffee shops have seen a resurgence.

I don’t know if it’s just me but I been noticing that the general public is becoming more aware of decadeology. Terms like “early 2010s” and “2010s ____” are becoming more common. 2020 will probably be a bigger deal than 2010 was, especially bc the election.

Also, the twenties just rolls off the tongue a lot better than “the tens” or “the teens”... and which one of these sentences sounds dumb to say/hear?

“I graduated back in ‘92”
“I graduated back in ‘12”
“I graduated back in ‘22”

We are still not ready to talk about years the same as pre 2000 because it still won't feel right to say back in 22, "was that year 21 or 20" you have to wait at least untilll at least the 30's for the novelty to wear off we've been operating by two nameless decades for twenty years and we can't just go back right away to saying the last two numbers of a year like we did in the 90's right of the bat without it still feeling off for the the general populace, I don't expect in one a and a half years  for people to be saying "it's the 20's happy new year" in 17 months time sorry.

I don't know. No one misses the 2000s, and I think people will miss the first six years of the 2010s. People may be praying for a change, but I'm not sure if they will take decades into account. I would; I hope that when the 2020s come, it'll be more like the 2000s, or at least dramatically different to the 2010s and turn out in my favour.

Does this matter? I fail to see how the naming of a year determines whether or not the 2020s will be a big deal in terms of change. Also novelty? People have been saying the last two years for the '20s during the 1920s. But again why does this matter?
