Interesting fact: "degrees Celcius" is actually redundant.
Celcius is a newer usage of the original term centigrade, which literally translates to a hundred gradations, or degrees.
So while a temperature reading in F should be read as "degrees Fahrenheit," a temperature reading in Celcius should read as "such and such a temperature Celcius (or centigrade, if you want to be fancy).
Of course, colloquial usage is king, but if it's all the same to everyone else, I will ignore fahrenheit as I typically do for it's lack of usefulness, and I will continue to omit the extra "degrees" to my Celcius reading.
