       The Beacon’s ‘DID YOU KNOW’:       Baby Boomers’ Characteristics 

The key characteristic of Baby Boomers is the year of our birth.  The term Baby Boomer generation is a sociological term referring to Americans born during the post World War II period from 1946 thru 1964.  It soon became a marketing and advertising FAD and quickly became “main stream” in the public domain.

Define Our Generation


Along with the generation born between 1946 and 1964, we also look at the later part of the generation that came before us and the early part of the generation that came after us.  Because our generation had an effect on them as well.  So what we are really addressing  are the years from about 1935 to about 1980.  

These are just a few of the characteristics that shaped our generation:

  • We were the first generation that did not use ‘RATION COUPONS’ after WWII
  • We were the first generation to be directly effected by the nuclear bomb.
  • The term ‘Cold War’ was introduced in our generation.
  • We were the first generation to live under the threat of nuclear annihilation.
  • We were the first generation to be heavily influence by a phenomena called television.
  • ‘ROCKnROLL’ was introduce during our teen years.
  • We became a teenager sometime between 1953 and 1977.
  • New technologies became realities and had major influences on our day to day lives.
  • We had the greatest economy that had ever been seen in history (particularly in the US.).

As The Oldest Generation Today 

We are concerned with:

  • Our Retirement and Retirement Assets.
  • Our Health
  • Caring For Our Elderly Parents
  • Our Children’s Education
