Grand Haven Tradition
(wgvu) - GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) - A brief family history is contained on
a five- by seven-inch Christmas card that two siblings and their
spouses have exchanged for the past 50 years.

Baggott signed their names on the card and sent it back to the
The card has been exchanged every Christmas since, with each
couple adding mentions of big events like births and children going
off to college. With only about three inches of space left on it,
Beth Baggott says they'll all have to write smaller.
The Grand Haven Tribune reports the couples have hand-delivered
the card for the past three years because it's become so valuable
to them.
