Family Publishes 142-Page Christmas Newsletter

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Do you get bored reading a Christmas family newsletter after the third page? Well, one family has written what could be the world’s longest newsletter.

The Hughes family of Santa Clara, California, has put together a 142-page newsletter which can be printed as a full-color book and purchased for $30 using the publish-on-demand website,

Doug Hughes, an employee communications manager at Lockhead Martin is the author of the lengthy letter which covers what’s new with his family in 2005, but also takes a retrospective look at his wife, Diane, and their 25th wedding anniversary.

The book is still growing as Christmas draws near. Mr. Hughes says he added a few more pages when his daughter was rushed to the hospital a few days ago for an appendectomy.

Hughes has been asked what he’ll do to top it next year, and he says he’s considering a video.
