2. It depends on which calender you use...

There are many, many of them.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_calendars

So, anytime you want to to?

Oh, we are using the calendar of the current Empire, which got if from the RCC. It was introduced as a reform of the Julian calendar in the Roman Catholic church, since the 20th century in de facto use worldwide.

Me? Oh, maybe I will begin the new decade this week or so. I am not sure.

6. current calendar? 2021

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anno_Domini#No_year_zero:_start_and_end_of_a_century

but IMO, mere technicality. We may be dead in 2021, so start early

10. After Y2K, some co-workers of mine got a discussion going....

about what to call the new decade. In the last century, we had the Twenties, the Thirties, the Forties,....Nineties.... Nobody could come up with any good ideas. I joined the discussion and promptly came up with "the Aughties"! As in "twenty-aught-one," "twenty-aught-two," "twenty-aught-three," etc. All those young pups had never heard of zero referred to as "aught".

So what did we decide to call the next decade, from 2010 to 2019? Easy--"the Teenies"!

11. There's no Year 0 to start a decade.

When one counts, they begin at #1, so the decade would be 2021-2030, IMO.
