Multi-Generational Tradition Strung Together by a Single Sweater

Sometimes it’s the story behind the old family hand-me-down that makes that item special to us; such is the case with the Gose family. When Brady Gose, a 7-year-old from Brownsburg, Indiana, got his picture taken for the first-grade, he was carrying on a 61-year-old family tradition. Wearing the same grey sweater that his father, grandfather and great-uncle all wore for their first-grade picture, Brady is now the fifth person in his family to don the sentimental sweater. Brady’s dad, Chuck says that Brady knows how special this sweater is to his family, and hopes that one day Brady will pass it down to his kids. Do you have any unique family traditions like this?
