Are these things more Boomer or Millennial?

Stake your generational claim.


On the surface, Boomers and Millennials could not be more different. Boomers, those born during the “baby boom” after the Second World War, were raised in vastly different circumstances than Millennials, those born in the last 15-20 years of the 20th century.

However, their interests might not be so far apart. Obvious cultural and technological changes aside, there are many similarities. Millennials love all things retro like vinyl records, film photography and sixties fashion. But have they brought it back enough to claim it as their own?

Here are twelve things that could apply to either generation. Choose whether you think each one best applies to Boomers or Millennials. We’ll show you how popular your answers are in this poll.

I really like TV dinners because my mom was a terrible terrible cook. I mean she was bad. Not only did ittaste bad, it often made us ill.

My dad suspects that she was just trying to get out of cooking. Looking back, I believe he was right.

83%. I picked van for millenials because use I was thinking station wagon for boomers. We would fold the back seat down in our station wagon, sit right up against the real glass window, ask our parents to mash on the brakes then we'd tumble forward to the front seat! Lots of fun! We still survived. Run with scissors anyone?

As a young person I just want to say Vinyl is amazing. Though the best thing is when you go to a record store to find an original vinyl from a long time ago that's cheap with no scratches :)

I'm a boomer who still plays more vinyl at home than CD's. I'm glad that vinyl has made a comeback with millennials.
