Fans share what they miss most about One Direction on their five-year album anniversary

So it’s the fifth anniversary of One Direction’s first album, Up All Night, and diehard fans are gathering on Twitter to mark the special occasion.

They may have gone their separate ways (for now) but the milestone was still a special moment for Liam Payne…

But his moment of nostalgia is nothing compared to the outpouring of emotion from the band’s loyal fandom.

They’ve been sharing what they miss most about the boys, and some of them have been getting pretty imaginative.

Even just the clothes made an impression…

They miss the special social media moments. Even the ones about carrots…

Some people are still pretty weepy over the day Zayn Malik left…

A lot changes in five years. Just remember all that youth, all that innocence…

Not just the band’s, but our own as well…

Even the sillier moments hold a special place in people’s hearts…

And for some, the band’s rise to stardom actually changed lives forever!

We’re probably not the only ones wondering where the guys will be in the next five years!
