NOTE; If you wish to workout the number of hours to the millennium then multiply the number of days by 24 hours. Then add the number of hours left to the end of the current day. E.g. Date = 12th of August 1997, time = 2:00am British Summer Time = 871 days × 24 hours + 22 hours (24 hours - 2 hours) ------------ = 21875 hours + 1 hour (BST to GMT, see below) ------------ = 21876 hours ============ If your clocks are set to summer time and the new year is in your winter then add one hour, E.g. you are in BST (British Summer Time (GMT+1)) and the new year is in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). If you are in winter time and the new year is in your summer (Southern hemisphere country) then deduct an hour. Also the Chinese, Jewish and Islamic millennium are on different dates and not the 1st of January 2000. Click select here to goto Mark's welcome page.

Too late, you've missed it! Yes - historians have discovered that Jesus Christ was born in the year 6BC and not 1AD. So his 2000th birthday was in 1995. (-5 years only as there was no year 0bc / 0ad) This also means that he was born 5 years before his birth and was aged five at birth! Did you know that the day after Wednesday the 2nd of September 1752 was Thursday the 14th of September 1752 in many countries. (Julian to Gregorian calendar changeover in English-speaking countries - lost 12 days there)
