Today birthday cards are a dying breed, being steadily replaced by Facebook felicitations. However, the old fashioned card with a hand written sentiment did seem to carry a more sentimental value that today’s internet congratulations kind of lack.
Some people prefer a more old-fashioned approach then others and that’s not always bad. These two cousins have been sending each other the same birthday card for 47 years.
47 years back the card was bought for 25 cents and has been travelling from cousin to cousin ever since.
The image of the birthday card has been uploaded by redditor LincolnsLostSpeech. He wrote that the card belonged to his fiancée’s uncle and his cousin.
As far as cute family traditions go, this one has to be up there. In total, there have 94 re-giftings of the card.
