A “Xennial” is a person who was born on the cusp of “Generation-X” and “Millennial”.
Xennial is the coined term denoting a “microgeneration” that is neither fully Generation X
Some consider ‘xennials’ to be those born between 1977 and 1983. … It’s a population sandwiched between Gen Xers and millennials that doesn’t identify with either
Why do I refer to myself as Xennial? Well the list is entirely too long to post here, but I will say this. I remember Michael Jackson’s Grammy performance of Billie Jean, but I also appreciate Chris Brown and his era. I can relate to both generation X’ers and Millenials. I remember time prior to cell phones and YouTube but I feel incomplete without it.
Good magazine has described Xennials as “a micro-generation that serves as a bridge between the disaffection of Gen X and the blithe optimism of Millennials.”
