As a 90’s kid and a person watching the younger generation grow up behind us, I’m convinced the 90’s was one of the best generations to grow up in. Here’s why…

The Cartoon Network

Now this channel is still around today, but in an entirely different form to what it used to be. In the 90’s we had shows like The Rugrats, Ed, Edd and Eddie, and my personal favourite – Courage the Cowardly Dog. They’re replaced with shows Ben 10 and Adventure time, which haven’t a patch on the old shows, you don’t get the same humour as you used to.

The Music

From the cheesy music such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, to the serious and meaningful music such as Nirvana and Pearl jam, the 90’s were great for music. We had the era of cheesy boyband’s too, just to top it all off.

The Movies

Nobody can argue that there were some outstanding movies made in the 1990’s. Everyone should just take a weekend they have off and dedicate it to watching 90’s classic movies. Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, Titanic, Saving Private Ryan, and Home Alone. Especially Home Alone.

The Fashion

High waisted light denim jeans, plaid shirts, crop tops. The 90’s had some gems, so much so that the majority of the fashion trends are making a comeback today.

The Fake Relationships

Almost everyone had a relationship on holidays and boasted about it when they came home. Young people weren’t on social media sites at the time so nobody had any idea whether the people actually existed or not but they were their ‘true loves’ and it would of worked out if it ‘wasn’t for the distance’.

The Dance Craze’s

From the Macarena, to the MC Hammer dance, the dance crazes that were prominent in the 90’s were much more fun, and much less embarassing, than twerking.

The Games

We couldn’t play with our friends over the internet, so instead we played games like Hide and Seek and Tip the Can. Then we had the boardgames for when it wasn’t nice out, Monopoly being the prime one that destroyed friendships.

I’m sure theres loads of things I’ve left out so if you’re feeling nostalgic don’t be afraid to comment, I’d love to hear from you!
