For some unknown reason, Generation Y was eradicated a few years ago and the remains were divided into Gen X (1961–1981) and Millennials (1982–1996).

That’s bulls*t.

So many things have advanced during the short lifetime of these 20 & 30-somethings, that the group resits identifying with either side. So they did what they do best: change it.

That’s how the Xennial generation was created. It’s for people born between 1977 – 1983 who had an analogue childhood and a digital adulthood.
