It's not only Christmas Eve. It's Louis Tomlinson's 22nd birthday! The One Direction wildman is the oldest member of the boy band. And by all accounts, such as interviews with his bandmates, things he himself says in interviews and his general antics, LT is the life of the 1D party.

In honor of Louis Tomlinson's awesomeness, and his birthday, we've assembled 22 GIFs that showcase and display the art of being LT. Notice how expressive his face is in most of these GIFs and the fact that he isn't afraid to make a fool of himself all in the name of fun.

LT in suspenders.
