How to say years?

Hello!

Can you tell me, please, how to say correctly the year 2009? "Two thousand and nine" or "two thousand nine"?

Thank you!

In the American English spoken where I live (SE Pennsylvania), you would hear more often "two thousand nine" without the "and", though both ways, with and without, would be heard as o.k.

Definitely with the "and". I also believe that we should always use "two thousand and .." instead of "twenty ..." as people now use for the current year: of ocurse, both are correct
