10 Signs You Grew Up In The ’60s

It’s probably safe to say that every generation believes they have the best culture: the best music, the best food, the best style, etc… In our humble opinions, the only people who can actually back up this claim are those who grew up in the 1960s! We had fantastic music (like a small group you may have heard of called The Beatles), delicious food (one word: fondue), and the best style (I’d still have feathered hair if it was feasible). If any of this sounds familiar to you, then you probably remember some things about your childhood that just aren’t the same these days.

We got to thinking, and decided to come up with a list of ten surefire signs that show you grew up in the ’60s. Take a look below and let us know what you think in the comments! What would you add to the list? We always like to hear your memories.


1. There was a time when the only set of keys you worried about were the ones that locked your skates to your shoes.

Nowadays I have keys on my keyring and have no idea what they’re for.

2. You remember when Jello was basically its own food group.

Jello wasn’t just for dessert.

3. You’ve been hit in the face with a red rubber bouncy ball.

Most likely during a game of dodgeball.

4. You remember a time when you would go a whole day without taking a single picture.

Today’s kids would have a hard time understanding this.

5. You drank water from a garden hose.

And you lived to tell the story!

6. You remember the two choices we had for dinner: take it or leave it.

Brussel sprouts were better than going to bed hungry.


7. You remember when as kids, you could just clothesline the people you didn’t like during a game of Red Rover!

Especially that kid who hit you in the face during dodgeball!

8. You ate meals full of butter and sugar but stayed in shape because you were busy doing chores.

How many calories did we burn changing the channel on the TV set?

9. You remember that all you had to do to block a caller was take the phone off the hook.

You could also eavesdrop on people via the party lines.

10. You wouldn’t trade your childhood for the world!
