These Two Cousins Have Exchanged The Same Birthday Card For Forty-Seven Years

In a world where birthday wishes are delivered via a Facebook post of an embarrassing photo from childhood, it’s hard to remember a time when actual paper cards were exchanged. Indeed, whimsical greetings were written by hand and exchanged without a reminder from the Internet (side note: does anyone remember the last time they licked an envelope?)

Well, as it turns out, not everyone has adopted the impersonal, 21st-century approach to birthday greetings. Two family members are giving us serious #FriendshipGoals with their shared birthday card. Redditor LincolnsLostSpeech uploaded a picture of the card which belongs to his fiancée’s uncle and his cousin.

The two have exchanged the same birthday card for FORTY-SEVEN years. It was purchased for twenty-five cents back in the day.

Typically, re-gifting is considered rude, but it’s pretty cool when it happens ninety-four times. And hey, the card said so. It’s in surprisingly good condition too— we would definitely have spilled a birthday cocktail on it by now.  

Could this family be any cuter?

Well done, Bill and Steve. 

The Internet can’t get enough of the cuteness. 

The picture of the card has been viewed nearly two million times in just two days.

Comment from discussion This birthday card has been regifted…94 times.
It even brought back some nostalgia for a Redditor with a similar experience.
