One Direction’s 11-year anniversary is today (Friday 23 July) and yes we’re already crying.
After last year’s milestone anniversary, where the boys released a highlights video of the band’s best moments, fans are just as emotional this time around.
In 2020 Directioners had full-on (virtual) parties, complete with themed-cakes, balloons and of course every single one of their albums on repeat.
This year, it’s a similar occasion, with one fan declaring they stocked up on 1D party supplies once again.
A number of fans also had streaming parties, reminiscing the group’s five albums from start to finish.
The virtual party saw thousands of fans tune in to look back at the boys’ journey, while others chose to watch their documentary movie This Is Us.

11 years ago today, five boys who auditioned as solo artists, were put together in a group during the XFactor Bootcamps. That was the start of One Direction, one of the greatest bands in the history of music. #11YearsOfOneDirection pic.twitter.com/qrVaYTG370
One fan tweeted: “One Direction's 11th Anniversary Virtual Party with co-directioners!!!”
“OH YAS!! THIS IS US WATCH PARTY!!!” Shared another.
One Direction went on hiatus back in 2016 after Zayn left the band, and since then fans have held onto hope they’d eventually reunite.
Each of the boys’ solo careers have been incredibly successful but that won’t stop us manifesting their comeback.
