The Fall of 1978

We've had enough summer quizzes, so it's time to put some fall quizzes in as well. I remember the fall of 1978 as when I had my first boyfriend, when we had two Popes, when Kool-Aid wasn't just a fun drink anymore, when we all were obsessed with John Travolta in "Grease" but were not obsessed with Peter Frampton in a certain Beatles-related disaster, and when Chicago hit the cover of People Magazine. And somehow, I missed the infamous "Star Wars Holiday Special!"
