Christmas Pictures of Generation X

Check out our collection of Christmas pictures of Gen-Xers taken during the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s. 

Who Is Generation X?

Submit Your Christmas Photos of Generation X

Do you have old Christmas pictures of Generation X from the 1960s, 70s, 80s or 90s? I’d love to feature them as a tribute to the life and times of America’s 13th Generation. Contact me using this form or email me your submissions at jennifer [at] tambourinepr [dot] org. Also, I pay top dollar for high-quality Gen X collections including old scrapbooks, portraits, ephemera, old slides and photographs, etc.

Collecting Photos

One of my favorite things to do is collect old snapshots, faded photographs and 35 mm slides, etc., and share them with readers. I especially love old Christmas pictures of Generation X! Unfortunately, I have relatively few Christmas photos from my youth and childhood, so I’m always looking to find myself — or at least my experiences — in other peoples’ photos. I cherish high-quality images of my eras of childhood and youth. For me, there will never be enough, for they exquisitely tell the story of our days and times and contribute to this Gen-X archive.

Christmas 1978 and Gen-X Relics From 40 Years Ago
