Oldest Dutchman’s, Armenian’s, birthday

This music video is called Stevie Wonder – Happy Birthday.

Translated from Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad, Sunday 30 June 2013:

The oldest man in the Netherlands celebrates his birthday this Monday. Amersfoort man Serop Mirzoyan will then become 107 years old. He will celebrate his birthday with his family and friends and Mayor Lucas Bolsius will visit this Monday, says his daughter.

Mirzoyan is Armenian and was born in Diyarbakir in Turkey in 1906. Later he lived in Iraq, where he worked as a farmer. In 1996 he came to the Netherlands. He only knew the year of his birth and the birth date July 1 was chosen for him.

This elderly man is well. He still lives at home with his daughter. He is not the oldest Dutch person. The oldest Dutch person is a woman. Egbertje Leutscher-De Vries from Havelte (Drenthe) is 110 years old.

Happy birthday!
