The 1990's was a pretty good time, people seemed to have more money to spend on things and, splurge back then. One of the famous TV shows back then was Seinfeld. I'm sure everybody remembers the show, where George's Dad created his own holiday called festivas lol, because he thought Christmas had became to commercial. The 90's was also a time of a lot of new Christmas movies as well, like Home Alone and, Santa Claus, with Tim Allen, two classics that everyone still loves today. Mariah Carey also came out, with a hit Christmas song, that became the most downloaded Christmas song of all time. I think it's called all I want for Christmas. The 90's was also big for microchip technology, the first website was actually tested on Christmas I guess and, in 95 a huge war started between Sony PlayStation and, Nintendo, Nintendo had I think the 64 by that time, which one did you prefer? I sill preferred Nintendo. CD's passed the cassette in 1992, basically putting them out of business, I remember that just came out of no where. I had thousands of tapes to, some of the popular gifts in the 90's were Computers, PlayStation, Nintendo 64, portable cd player, gift cards, tickle me Elmo, beanie babies, game boy, ninja turtles, power rangers, nerf guns, super soaker, pogs, creepy crawlers, Pokémon, easy bake oven and, many more? What were your favorite toys to get? I wasn't aware of this, but I guess Gorbachev actually resigned on Christmas and, last but not least, another cool movie that came out was nightmare before Christmas. What do you remember about Christmas in the 90's?

I remember being busy busy busy at Christmas time in the 90s. Christmas is busy for teachers. I was a single mom so didn't have Lots of money. My girls were more into clothes and stuff by that time and stuff for skiing. I don't remember specific gifts they wanted. I remember great times with my extended family when we all skied together.

I had just moved here from living in Germany for three years..so I almost had a culture shock, even in that short time. Plus living with my mom, without my dad, due to a divorce, we lived a lot differently. But I remember getting my first nintentdo. my first little black and white tv with the antennas to play on. I do remember all those movies. I think the 90s where good times for me overall

@TRBRocks420 lol Yeah I remember that Seinfeld episode. We used to watch it on TV every time it was on. Still watch it. Was one of the best shows. I remember when the Furby came out. I still have mine lol But the very first one I got was all screwy. It was making a loud high pitched sound instead of talking. I would have been 7 I think. I freaked out and didn't know what to do. I quickly put it under a pillow to try and hide the sound lol I don't know why I did that. Just freaked out. But mum and dad took it back and got me a new one which was nice. There was a lot of awesome toys back then. I also remember getting a Playstation 1 and playing Driver one Christmas morning. Was so much fun.
