Many people have a birthday on November 29th, but Emma Morano from Vercelli, Italy, is the only person celebrating her 117th birthday today. She’s the world’s oldest living person, but not only that – she’s the last person alive who was born in the 1800s!

When Emma was born, in 1899, Britain was still at war with the Boers in South Africa. World War One was still fifteen years away and she was already 28 by the time the television was invented. She holds the Guinness world record as the only person alive born in the 19th century, but what’s the secret to her long life? “I eat two eggs a day, and that’s it,” she told AFP News Agency. “And cookies. But I do not eat much because I have no teeth.” so if you ever needed an excuse to eat cookies, now you have one! Happy birthday Emma!
