In France, I know that many special events are in project in order to celebrate 31 December 1999 -> 1st January 2000. They speak of constructing a tower bigger than the Eiffel Tower entirely in wood! It will be difficult for us to celebrate this year turn as another one, seen all the major events that will happen. But personnally, I'd prefer to celebrate 31 December 2000 -> 1st January 2001, which is the _real_ turn of the millenium (at least for the Gregorian calendar), but I think no major events are in project for that day. Too bad! Well, if I'm lucky, we'll celebrate both turns specially, or the entire year 2000 will be a celebration (imagine, an entire year, wow!).
