Most people will argue that the 1970s were simply an extension of the 60s. Those were indeed challenging times, when there were massive political, ethnic, and environmental movements. But despite tumultuous situations, it was still a decade worth remembering.
Who could forget The Brady Bunch, roller skates, Abba, and the Star Wars – all products of the 70’s. Disco Fever was definitely on a roll then, and almost everyone you know was sporting an Afro. Let’s not forget glam rock and the ubiquitous Tupperware.
Another mark of the 70’s was the hot summers. Playing all day outside, drinking out of a hose, sleeping over at a friend’s house for days, and building backyard forts – these are what childhood memories are made of.
