Think about the year of 1968 for a moment! Fifty years ago when gas was cheaper and life was simpler, right? There was the same batch of songs, TV shows, food items, fashion trends, and more that people collectively came together to enjoy. There were also some losses and tragedies during the year 1968 but sometimes, it is nicer to focus on the happier things. It would be difficult for anyone to forget about such a year! With the year of 1968 being only two years shy of the 70s, so many things were jam-packed within those twelve months of time! 1968 was actually dubbed the year that transformed our nation so that says a lot about what kind of year it was! People were beginning to speak up for themselves and their opinions more at this time and some people were even going out of their way to protest against injustices in society! The movies and TV shows that were released for the first time in 1968 still have big names today which is pretty impressive. The top song of 1968 is also still very much beloved, adored, and sang along to in 2018-- fifty years later! It just goes to show that major things that go down in history can and will always heavily influence the future! Makeup styles and fashion trends are another big things from the year 1968. It was important to look sharp after all! Slang words and terminology from 1968 is also pretty funny, even though in 2018 we don't use that type of lingo anymore!
