I know this isn’t news (coined in 2014), but something I can attach self definition to. The term “Xennial” is being used to classify a micro-generation that exists between Gen-X’ers, and Millennials. I was born in mid-1979 so I certainly fall into this group.
What is a xennial?
– A micro generation born during the cusp years of Gen-X’ers and Millennials.
– i.e. between 1977-1983 (or when the original Star Wars trilogy was released).
– Xennials experienced an analogue childhood and a digital adulthood.
– Posses both Gen X cynicism and Millennial optimism and drive.
I know that the character of “The Dude” was most certainly Gen-X, it has nothing to do with anything — I just love quoting the movie, that’s all.
