Each decade of American history can be summed up by its own characteristics. The events that happened and the way people lived and dressed contributed to the overall memory of the time period. Different fads came and went, language was used and forgot, and daily habits that were the norm formed what life was like back then and how we view the decade now.

Is your personality more in tune with one of the classic eras than modern times? The 1930s were mostly consumed by the Great Depression after the largest stock market crash in US history in 1929. The fall of Wall Street resulted in extensive unemployment and poverty which fostered thrifty people, who were forced to make do with what they had. With World War II taking up the first half of the 1940s, Americans experienced a boost in economy, and even community morale.

This lead to the rise of swing and artists like Frank Sinatra allowed reprieve from underlying tensions of the country. By the time the 1950s came around, the second world war had ended, but conflict in social systems brought about the Cold War and a widespread adverse opinion toward communism. In the 1960s people had enough of all the rivalry, so they rebelled with psychedelics and activism, preaching peace and love for all of human kind.

This attitude brought about the radical changes of the 1970s, such as increases in women’s rights as employees, multiple lunar landings and the achievement of in-vitro fertilization. The 1980s were, therefore, a time to celebrate. Bright colors, goofy pants, and extravagant dancing were due for the time of prosper. This expression continued into the 1990s as grunge, raves, hip hop and the internet paved the way to the new millennium.
