Two of Harry Styles’ bandmates were seemingly so happy about starting their lengthy break from touring and recording music that they felt the urge to smooch someone. Luckily for Directioners, Harry Styles just happened to be standing around when Niall Horan and Liam Payne started searching for someone to kiss.
According to Unreality TV, the One Direction kisses occurred during two of the band’s last big gigs. The first smooch that Harry Styles scored from a bandmate was captured on camera at the December 4, Jingle Ball in Los Angeles, which was One Direction’s last performance in America before the start of the band’s big break. It’s currently mistletoe season, so “All About That Bass” singer Meghan Trainor took advantage of the boys’ holiday spirit by holding a sprig of the parasitic plant over Liam Payne’s head. Even though Meghan was all decked out in her ugliest Christmas sweater, Liam responded by giving her a quick peck on the cheek.

Niall Horan wasn’t anywhere near the mistletoe, but the plant still managed to work its magic on the Irishman. He gave Harry Styles a quick kiss on the cheek, and the blonde boybander immediately burst out into laughter after surprising his bandmate with the sweet smooch. Meanwhile, Harry Styles was too busy watching Liam Payne and Meghan Trainor to notice that Niall Horan was leaning in to plant a wet one on the side of his face. However, he responded to his band mate’s stunt with a little grin. The “Narry” kiss is something that some One Direction fans have been begging for.
According to J-14, Harry Styles’ scored his second smooch from a bandmate during One Direction’s last gig of 2015. After the band’s performance at The X Factor UK finale, Liam Payne rushed up to Harry, grabbed his face, and kissed him on the cheek.
All the Larries out there will be sad to learn that Louis Tomlinson was not filmed kissing Harry Styles before One Direction’s hiatus. However, there’s a possibility that he has been wearing one of Harry’s jackets. And speaking of warm winter clothing, Harry can been seen sporting a Santa hat in James Corden’s holiday-themed “Carpool Karaoke” video.
The Late Late Show host and house band leader Reggie Watts invited a few famous faces to help them sing “Joy to the World” in their festive “Christmas Carpool Karaoke” video, which includes appearances by One Direction, Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, Stevie Wonder, Iggy Azalea, Rod Stewart, and Jason Derulo.
At one point in the video below, something distracts James Corden and the members of One Direction from their carpool Christmas caroling. When the guys spot a couple kissing on the side of the road, they decide to interrupt the make-out session to wish the kissers a Merry Christmas before telling them to “get a room.”
It could be quite some time before One Direction fans get to see their beloved boys together again, but at least James Corden gave Directioners an early Christmas present that they can watch over and over again. According to the Daily Mail, Louis Tomlinson informed British talk show host Alan Carr that the band’s hiatus will likely last around 18 months.
Many Directioners are worried that Harry Styles or one of his bandmates will pull a Zayn Malik by deciding to leave the group for good, but Harry tried to allay their fears by saying that no one will attempt to launch a solo career during the break. Styles said that he and his fellow singers might work with other musicians during their time off from One Direction, but fans should not see this as a sign that the group will never ever get back together.
“We all write kind of separately and for other people and do stuff and bring it back, and that is it really,” Harry Styles said.
In the meantime, fans will miss seeing cute interactions between Harry Styles and his bandmates like the kissing videos above.
