Happy anniversary, One Direction!

1D celebrate three years together--on this day, just a few years ago, their boy band was formed.

Directioners have Simon Cowell to thank for the band coming together, after Liam, Niall, Harry, Zayn and Louis appeared on The X Factor and seemed better suited together than as solo artists.

Honestly, we can't imagine the talented guys any other way than as a five-some.

Harry Styles tweeted about the anniversary, writing: "3."

The hashtag "#3Yearsof1D" quickly followed.

Harry then tweeted: "3 years.. I honestly can't believe it. Thank you so much for everything, we're so lucky to have you. You keep making it more and more fun."

Louis Tomlinson's mom tweeted: "3 years today 1D were formed. My boys words during a rushed phone call .... Mum, I've been put in a band!"
