51 Years, 17 Girls, and One Plaid Dress

It all started in 1965, when Janice Parker bought a dress for her daughter Diana. She loved the dress and insisted on wearing it for her picture day in kindergarten. Her five younger sisters liked the dress, too, and they each wore it for picture day when they went through kindergarten. And so did their daughters. And then their granddaughters.

It's held up remarkably well. Sure, there are some rips and tears, but nothing that can't be easily fixed.

Of course, sometimes the girls would complain. The dress isn't the definition of current style and some of them said they were teased. But, they came around and the tradition continued.

That's three generations of sisters and cousins. The latest girl in the family didn’t want to wear the dress, or any dress. But she did, along with pants and a baseball cap, so the tradition can continue. -via Fark
