Are we officially in the 21st century?

Asked by Siena Townsend

And as we all know, we’re currently in the 21st century, but the years start with 20. … The thing to remember is that the number in the name of the century (the 16th century, for example) is always one higher than the number that starts the century’s years: the years of the 16th century start with 15.
