Going home for the holidays can be a lot of fun. You see your family for the first time in a few months or longer, you reunite with old friends who’ve also traveled back home, catch up on your live, reminisce about old times, and generally enjoy each other’s company.
Of course, going back home again doesn’t always dredge up good memories. Sometimes your past can come back to haunt you.
That’s what happened to Twitter user @alexaldolang, who tweeted a photo of some ancient artifacts she found in her bedroom, and unwittingly ignited a firestorm of tweets from others who’d rediscovered their pasts in the form of some mortifying bedroom decorations and accessories.

Some bad-ass Star Wars wallpaper is nothing to hang your head about:

Neither is a solid collection of Harry Potter accessories:

At least they had a childhood room to go back to. Some parents converted their kids’ rooms to guest rooms. And others did this:

What old artifacts did you find in your childhood home? I may or may not have found my old collection of Garfield books and I do NOT want to talk about it.
