Having nostalgic thoughts is actually good for our health, according to experts. But, what if instead of simply thinking about good memories, we try to recreate them? Some artsy people on the internet did just that, and we’re in love with the results.

Bright Side has picked 15 of the best shots of people who tried their hand at bringing their old photos back to life.

2. I saw the apron while shopping and decided to remake a Christmas memory, 23 years apart.
