Although it is quite difficult to imagine our grandparents being young, they had as much fun as you can guess. The old photos reveal a generation that was somehow more mature and seemingly had a better understanding of life. However, beneath their tough exterior are the same ideas of love, friendship, and happiness that young people share today.
Reddit's photo campaign that celebrates grandparents
The idea of wanting to have a peek into the lives of previous generations isn't new by a long shot. Fortunately for us, our grandparents are young enough to have photos that show some of the greatest moments in their lives. In honor of our grandparents, Reddit has launched a trend of publishing old photos and showing your grandparents to the world.
It may seem strange but our grandparents fell in love, enjoyed the feeling and got heartbroken. Just like we do today. Only, it also seems they were a bit classier, kind of like watching a good 1950s movie.

Even back then, it was all about being cool. And nothing is cooler than having your own car, bike or even a boat.

Of course, we must not forget that our grandparents were pioneers in many ways. Their dedication and bravery laid the foundation for the world we know today.

Our grandparents are not accidentally named the greatest generation. They didn't live the easiest lives but they made the most of their lives. The world was a more dangerous place, but somehow nicer and simpler at the same time.
If your grandparents are alive and well, go pay them a visit. Listen to their stories, look at their photos, you will surely be pleasantly surprised.
