The 1920s are called the Roaring Twenties because they were during the Roaring Twenties. (Think of a big explosion, and think of the Twenties).
In 1920 the people around your age did not seem quite so excited about the future as they did today, which is why 1920 was labeled as the Roaring Twenties. (Think of you taking in the movie Titanic, the movie that many of us were watching on Christmas Eve of 2009.)
1920 was the year a lot of young people got married (think of girls in dresses getting married in the 1920s). For those of you in middle or high school at the time, this was the beginning of the most exciting age of dating, and of the most fun and exciting time in your lives.
1920 was the year the people who were “working” during the Roaring Twenties started getting jobs and starting families. A lot of those things have happened to us in the last century as well – and more.

1920 is the year we really started to understand ourselves and ourselves weren’t that unique.

(1920 was also the year people began to appreciate their own personal achievements, and to be “empowered” by their own accomplishments – and were amazed to learn that many of the accomplishments they had “earned” before would have been considered “unworthy” in our times.)
