I could no have cared less to learn what is was but they just kept harping about the beginning of the new millenium back in the 90's that it just stuck.

It's weird and cool how some information just buries itself in your brain even though you never wanted it.

A period of time that is equal to one thousand years is referred to as a millennium. It got the name from the Latin mille meaning thousand, and annus meaning year. Find more details on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennium.
