In Japan, we use two different ways to indicate a year. One is the Christian Era, that is used around the world. The other is the era name. It usually changes when an Emperor dies. However, after about a year and a half, the Era name will change. The current Emperor is still alive for now, but he is too old to do all his tasks as an Emperor. I'm looking forward to the new Era name.

Does your country have a different name for year, except the Christian Era?
