For the last 10 years, the 23rd of July is a day celebrated by fans of the British-Irish Boy Band One Direction as their anniversary. And while the day usually brings a lot of excitement and a rush of emotions, this year, all of it is over the moon. The boy band, now a man band, has its members getting together for a reunion! And dare we word it, it’s the highlight of the year. Almost 5 years ago, One Direction band members, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan decided to go on a break leaving directioners around the world, heartbroken. However, one post from the official page and Directioners broke the Internet!
One Direction fans make almost 3 million tweets in 18 hours.
Fans of the band needed not more than one indication for them to get back on the internet and prove themselves as the ‘best fandom ever’. Illustrating their emotions via memes, GIFs, and words, the One Direction fans are really enthusiastic about the anniversary! They are celebrating in all sorts of ways. Just take this fan, for example, they made cupcakes and organized a two-day sleepover for fellow fans!

Meanwhile, there are some stans who do not want to get their hopes too high by relying on the Reunion talks and so, they have formed an alternate plan,
if one direction tweets some dumb shit like “10 years! thank you for everything. good bye.” , we will simply celebrate vanilla ice cream day instead . pic.twitter.com/DINZoD40Sb
