Despite the number of digital aids out there aimed at helping us remember birthdays, it’s still easy to miss one. Facebook makes it simple to shoot off a quick “Happy Bday!” message on someone’s wall, but actually sending a card is another thing.
These two relatives have taken sending birthday wishes to the next level. As Reddit user LincolnsLostSpeach shared, her fiance’s uncle and cousin have exchanged the SAME EXACT birthday card with each other for 47 years. That’s 94 exchanges of one card.
Not only is it amazing that the paper card, a Hallmark creation purchased in 1970 for 25 cents, hasn’t ripped, disintegrated or been lost in the mail after being sent 96 times—it’s amazing that the two men, Bill and Steve, have each been on top of their card-sending game for nearly half a century.
Here’s the front of the card:
Thanks for inspiring us, Bill and Steve!
