What exactly is a baby boomer?
It is actually a term for those people born in the years following World War II, which was the early 1940’s until the early 1960’s. It just so happened that immediately after World War II, the homecoming of the soldiers contributed to the significant increase of births during those years. For this generation, they are defined by…
…the rock ‘n roll greats such as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Rolling Stones
…Woodstock and other rock and music festivals
…five-and-dime stores convenience stores
…rotary dial phones
…classic TV shows such as “I Love Lucy”, “The Ed Sullivan Show”, “Bonanza”, “Captain Kangaroo” and so much more
…Assassinations of prominent US leaders and figures such as John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, etc.
…wild child and flower power fashion
…classical yet still loved toys such as Play-Doh, Barbie, Slinky, Hula Hoop, G.I Joe, Etch-A-Sketch and many more.
Yeah, we can imagine baby boomers living the life and enjoying their younger years. But now, their generation is the group who have already retired and are content to live out the rest of their lives in the comforts of their own homes. According to surveys, baby boomers would rather stay in their homes where they lived in for decades rather than moving to a smaller home, condo, apartment, assisted living facility or nursing home.
