There was no piece of mail more exciting than the Sears Wish Book. Each year, it would arrive wrapped in plastic, almost like a gift itself. We would carefully rip into the package and reveal the best resource for all of our Christmas wishlists.
We would carefully flip through the pages, and jot down the page numbers and product numbers that we wanted all before we would pass off the Wish Book to our parents. They were always patient with us when we would continuously reference things they had never heard of, probably because they had that super easy guide to go check.

Mustaches were ever present in the 80s. It seemed like everyone knew someone with a big ol' mustache just chilling out under their nose.

Some cartoons were better than others, that's just well known. Some shows like Animaniacs, Beetlejuice, and The Simpsons are still fondly remembered to this day.
