Baby Boomer’s Recognition Day was celebrated on June 21 until the date was moved to August 17 in 2016
Boomer is short for “baby-boomer” which is the generation born after life and economy recovered again after WW2.
This is roughly everyone born from 1946-1965.
A time where hope for the future became bright again, while on the other hand rebelling youth subcultures became increasingly politically aware.

The generation names are all about the time spirit, which of course varied wildly in different locations of the world.

A question with many facets and a time that would initiate many changes…
