In recent years we have had crazes such as the ice bucket challenge, which swept across the planet, allowing us to see hundreds of people getting ice-cold water thrown over their heads.

More like a trip down memory lane – a lane often ruined by sharp rocks and tufts of weeds.
So what is it called?Well this new challenge is known as ‘The Ten Year Challenge’.
What do you have to do?Again, challenge may not be the best word to use for this current trend, because it doesn’t involve doing anything difficult.
And it has been nothing but popular.The challenge has already swept the internet, with many people sharing their before and after pictures.
The challenge also has another name.Because of the nature of the challenge, it has also received another name.
