Best Years to Be Born

The Top Ten

1 1948

First of all not the best year to be born because homosexuality is criminalised and Black Men and women are also oppressed by many people including America, Australia, much of Europe. This is a horrible time to live through if you are gay, or a different skin tone.

Don't forget about the Communist revolutions taking place around the world.

Born into the Welfare State - NHS, State Pension, Final Salary Pension, student grants, mortgage tax relief, house price inflation. World Cup '66, The Beatles, Andy Pandy, Crackerjack etc.. life was simpler. No P.C., AIDS, and missed National Service.
Now coming 70 in December with 11 years retirement wealthier and fitter(ish) than ever. Say, do and drink what I like.

No this is the year israel was created

Black people had it great!

2 1989

The cartoons and the cereal and the food where amazing Christmas was the best in the 80s and it gives my memorable happy great feeling vibes!

Loved her from the outset, such a young vibrant woman who has remained an artist that when heard,... allow yourself the time to stop and listen... it's "Taylor"

January 9th,1989 Capricorn Baby Here ALL THE WAY lol..Definitely the BEST TIME to have been born..We had the best cartoons & t.v shows:Rugrats,Hey Arnold,Doug,Ren & Stimpy,My Little Pony's,All That,Are You Afraid of The Dark,Etc..WE actually played outside like NORMAL KIDS should be doing..Not like now'a'days where they're ALWAYS on their play phones/cells..& just the fact that there WAS more respect then COMPARED to NOW..Now'a'Day's u just got some DisrespectfulAss kids acting like they're adults..what? Anyways,that's JUST SOME of my opinions lol..1989 Babies RULE!

Not to much technologi and the japanese car scene was at its peak wish I was born then. I was born 2003

3 2000

I think that it's a nice time to be born in. I mean, we don't know the life without technology and computers, we are the generation that has had everything since the start- nice clothes, T.V., computers, all the gadgets. Anyway, 2000's wasn't so technological and computerised as 2010's and we could still esxperience a normal careless childhood+ 2000's was so a good era, I mean the time when on the top were JLO, Britney Spears, Rihanna and even Madonna. In 2010's we have had the sims 3, all the good computer games, consoles, kinect, T.V. series like The vampire diaries…

2000s is the starting of the 20th century and to be born there is very creative where everything that was from the 90s all gets upgraded and in a new position to people

Probably the last fantastic year to be born (also the year I was born). Back when technology was booming, the world was pre-9/11, great songs such as Beautiful Day by U2, great shows on Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, and great movies such as Almost Famous and Meet the Parents.

Basically if you are a gay man, by the time you actually want to come out, a lot more people will be supportive of you. So really it's a great year to be born as you are only 16 now and it provides a much better coming out experience for any gay male.

4 1875

The height of civilisation

It's a old time

5 1938

Would have been young enough to avoid actually taking part in WWII or Korean war, but would have seen a fascinating period of American history.

6 2002

Right now if you where born in 2002 you would be 18. 18 is the year where it’s your first start your Basically s grown up but still is a child and you actually get to see the word and the great to the bad

I was born in 2002 and have twin older sisters from 1998. We watched shows like Recess, Drake and Josh, Hannah Montana, etc. and had great music too. We played board games like Sorry! and the Game of Life. We have had great music and know how to use technology to access whatever we want. Overall, we have had the last great culture before the internet completely destroyed the minds of the 2006+ generation.

We had bomb ass music to listen to growing up, we had YouTube, timothy delaghetto, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network. We had 2006 Shaquille o Neal.2002 is the best year to grow up in prove me wrong

A good year to be born, probably one of the last good years to be born in. You still get a 90's influence, especially if you have older siblings.

7 1933

No one said anything? Honestly, I don't know if this is the best year to be born. It's 2018 and Millenials are supposedly on their way out (I you take the "ends at 1994" definition). I feel old and like my time is over even if I'm at the tail end. I'm 25 and I don't know whether I'm young or old. We have Ariana Grande, I guess.

8 1955

It isn't about the year I was born, but when I reached my teens. I feel I lived through the best music but maybe everyone feels like that!

Ye best music

9 2004

I was born on the 200th day of 2004, July 18, not only are you 90s influenced as a toddler, but brought up with advanced medicine and not that much technology in the crucial years. A nice sweet spot. You also just have to add 5 to your age to remember what year your in :)

Literally the last year kids won't be slaves to tech all their childhood.

I was born in this year and I’m 14 now. There is a definite contrast from the people born in 2005. I was born in January so have the best part of the year. In 15-20 years, 2004 will be up in the top 5

2022 gang rise up
Also the youngest so had all the cool stuff from the 90s

10 2003

You would be 17 right now and A year after You will be going to collage seeing what life is really about and being a half grown up and a half kid

Perfect age as old enough to enjoy life at its fullest but young enough to be irresponsible

When I born to stars meet each other on that day it was brightest night of the year

Even this year is awful, I wish I could be born in early 20th century.

The Contenders

11 1949
12 1999

This is the final year before the 21st century. Anyone born here that lives to be 101 will have lived in 3 different centuries. People born in this year also was deprived of some technologies just like everyone else in the 20th century. We grew up without phones as well and never even know what social media was until late middle school. We didn't care about our looks growing up and we just focused on having a normal childhood like everyone else.

Not only are we the last of the 90's babies, but we are also one of the last generations to have a childhood without crazy amounts of technology. Now when I see 6-year-olds playing on iPads and kids in elementary school on smartphones. Not that technology is bad, I'm glad that I had a chance to experience part of my life solely on my imagination.

Also, CLASS OF 2017 unite!

Best time to be alive we got to experience old cartoons such as Rugrats and Doug but we was still able to have cool gadgets too without being overloaded with all the technology things now. Plus I just like the year lol

Last year of the century enough said.

13 2005

Born in 2005. Incredibly sad. Not saying there's any correlation I just also happen to really dislike every year from 2017 on. 1998 would've been a good year to be born due to graduating in 2016. Would've graduated college during coronavirus unfortunately, but excluding the disaster that is 2020, 1998 would've been best in my opinion.

It would be nice to have childhood at mid-end 2000s (well got half of it)
There is a time between year 2000 and 2005 is last real generation of old school I think generation y ends here not in 2003 but its edge because there is 2005 born kids z gen. who don't have common sense but still I think that I'm old school because 2000s the best decade!

I was born in November 30 2005, so a month and a day till it hit 2006. I wish I was born earlier but hey, at least I won’t live to see 2080, hopefully. I only had a month and a day to remember 2005, but seeing all these people born in 2006, I feel kinda proud to live through all of 2006, and born to see the 2006 New Year’s Day. I don’t know much about the year I was born in but due to my research, I have approximately 6 months before I turn 14 years old, should I check my back?

Better than most years, there were lots of shows and things to do at the same time and we weren't influenced by technology too much.

14 2006

This is the best year, just wait you’ll see. First the talent. Second the brains. Third the everything else. This year is actually going places.

The very last year someone could be born with common sense.

Imagine NOT being born in 2006 pfft

Best year to be born hands down

15 2007

2007 is when all of the Disney princess movies started coming our left and right, and we actually have commen sense unlike the people born in 2008

The first iPhone was out on this year also this is my birth year

We had spongebob at its finest sweetie! No way anyone beats 07

I was born and a lot of good movies came out that were good

16 1996

Best year of the 90s

It's just cool.

Spice Girls year!

Bad boy year!

17 2001

I was born in 2001. I know 90s stuff. Here in India in early childhood we experience Nintendo games, VCR's, radios don't have any android phones just old nokia phone belongs to my dad. Play lot of sports in childhood

Beginning of a new era, plus its officially 2000 era

Ay class of 2019 mhbois

Class of 2018

18 1998

I was born in 1998. We graduated in 2016 before Trump was elected as president. So many other reasons why this is the best year. Also, as of 2020, we are turning 22!

Year I was born

1998 is the best year, not too close to the 2000s (Unlike 1999) so early 90s born, can’t say we aren’t 90s baby!

I was born in 1998, it was the best year for pop culture & we got to vote in the 2016 presidential election

19 2016 2016 (MMXVI) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2016th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 16th year of the 3rd millennium, the 16th year of the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2010s decade.

Just because my daughter was born

Naw It's a bad year

I would like to have a child. But the way things are today...perhaps not. Too selfish and violent and hardly any discipline.

This year was bad for me I’d don’t like this year. So no

20 1997

It's the year when the person who will change the world was born.
Those who were born in 1997 are different in every single way.

21 1994

Best movie year, the shawshank redemption - pulp fiction - lion king

This is the year because rap was going crazy.

They were the best years of my life

Peace and love worldwide!

22 1969

I was born in 1969. In my opinion the best year to be born. I got to grow up with kiss in the 70s collect magazines of rock bands and record albums of rock bands. My teens were the mid-80s. In my early twenties were the early nineties! which in my opinion is the best ERA for music and so much more. We were not inundated with music social media and everything else that is now inundating our world and lives

Very cool year to be born, not only because of the last two numbers (69) but people born this time had a great teenage years in 80's just when Madonna was on the top, they were experienced but still young in 00's, my favourite decade. 2010's suck so much

The year when Jennifer Lopez and Anniston; Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey amd Jay-Z and Ketha Zeta Jons were born. The hottest women ever existed. They were teenage girls in 80'S, 20 year old women in 90's and hot 30 year old girls in 2000's. The best years! My mum was born this year + this number 69

Because 69 lol

23 1992

I was born on Valentines Day of this year, and am old enough to remember lots of great 90s Saturday morning cartoons when they first came out when I was a kid!

Many greats born this year... Well by many I mean me

24 1991

The final year of 90s kids after that its 90s young child, toddlers and 90s babies. 1991 8 in 1999, 1992 7 in 1999 1993 6 in 1999 1994 5 in 1999 1995 4 in 1999 1996 3 in 1999 1997 2 in 1999 1998 1 in 1999 1999 born in 1999. How much do you remember of the years of the 90s if you was born between 1992-1999? Not much. If you was young child 5-7, toddler or baby.

25 1977

Are you kidding me People?
1977 Hands Down is the best year to have been born.
Let me state my reasons.
Grew up in the 80's (2-12) Great Toys, Cartoons, Movies, We still had our Innocence, Played Outside.
Came of Age in the 90's (12-22) Great Music, Dope Parties, Internet came out when they were 16.
2000's: (22-32): Were in their 20's during the Millennium Change & Were the among the 1st Net Entrepreneurs.
As of 2018(41): Still young enough to enjoy life!
Thank You

100% Get the first three 'dumb' years out of the way and enough to know you are alive, then 3-13 enjoying the 80s classic cartoons, movies and music. Then your teenage years in the 90s enjoying the more matured culture. Greatest two decades in history bar none!

All things great happened in 1977 Star Wars good music punk rock. My birth lol

Best year of all time!
