1960s Slang We Remember Well!

Do you remember all these groovy terms?

We grew up with so many new slang words, not only because kids love to use slang, but also because the ’60s were a time of changing social attitudes, and modern inventions that had never been seen before- not to mention that slang was spread quicker than ever before thanks to television. Kids today might not know all these terms, but we remember them well!
