I found this funny for some reason:

"A Christmas card that bore a three-cent stamp on its first trip through the mail is still going strong, thanks to a little tape and a lasting friendship.
The card has been exchanged by Dick Rewalt and his friend from the Navy, Roy Stern, since 1953."

It started off as a joke between two Navy buddies & just kept on going.

"Neither the Rewalts nor Stern and his wife, Betty, of Gonzales, La., expected the tradition to last this long.
'If we would've known that years ago, we would've bought a nicer card,' Betty Stern said."
(emphasis mine)
