# Invitation? how to write the year

My family and I are debating how to write the year. Should it be Two Thousand Ten or Two Thousand and Ten. I found this on crane's ettiquette page but it doesn't really say what's right.

**Isn't it incorrect to use "and," as in "Two thousand and one"? In mathematics "and" denotes a decimal point, and since there’s no decimal point in the year "2001," it may seem incorrect to use "and." Wedding invitations, however, are not mathematical equations, so the use of "and" as a decimal point is irrelevant. On wedding invitations, "and" is used simply as a connective word. **

## Re: Invitation? how to write the year

My opinion? Use whatever looks better to you, whether it's grammatically correct or not.

ps- im crabby today.l

They also said to make sure it's written "Two thousand ten"- only the Two gets capitalized.

If you are big on etiquette, then there is your answer.
