'twenty eighteen' or 'two thousand and eighteen'?

By Phileppa . Created on 05 Dec, 2018
I don't understand why people are saying 'two thousand and eighteen' and not 'twenty eighteen' when we never said 'one thousand nine hundred and ... (etc) ' because we always said 'nineteen... (etc)'. It's really unnecessarily long winded!

No particular reason - but two thousand and eighteen, to me, sounds better
