15 Photos That Let People Take a Trip Back to the Past

People often turn to family photo albums to reminisce. But some folks turn that experience up a notch by actually reliving at least one of those merry moments. Whether it’s a childhood pic or a photo from a close relative, Internet users are keen on recreating them as faithfully as possible. Besides having a good time doing so, they get a brand new memory out of it, which they sure are proud to share with the world.

Bright Side rounded up a few photo recreations that could warm hearts during the coldest seasons.
