I's no secret that at PopBuzz we like to look fondly upon the 90s, so when we saw that #ExplainThe90sIn4Words had been trending on Twitter all night, we couldn't get anything done from how much nostalgia there was to bask in.
Above all decades, the 90's seem to have the most staying power. You see more trends and articles dedicated to 90's nostalgia above all else. But WHY?
Is it because it was the last pure decade before internet culture took over? Is it because the biggest demographic online is composed entirely of 90's kids? Or is it because it was just that damn cool?
It remains a mystery, but the internet's obsession with tapping into our playground days never fails to awaken a new host of memories that make you yell out loud
(This one gave me some epic Primary 6 flashbacks).
It's not all nostalgia halleliujah, though; A couple of folks born on the later side of the 90's were quick to chime in on the decade they wouldn't remember.
