This week One Direction celebrated their second birthday. Oh it was emotional, we ate cake, played pass the parcel and remembered their dramatic birth while wearing Louis Tomlinson masks. Or not.

Anyway, a hell of a lot has gone since 2010, for instance we had bobs back then and Liam Payne straightened his hair; so let’s go all the way back to the beginning and take a trip down One Direction Memory Lane.. There should SO be a lane called that.
