Who says older guys can’t have fun too? A spunky 109-year-old man in Los Angeles celebrated his birthday in style with the help of a belly dancer.

A birthday party to remember

As reported by TMZ, a 109-year-old named Morrie Markoff recently invited a belly dancer to his condo in L.A. on January 11th. Born in 1914, this gentleman is one of the oldest living men in the United States. His grandson, Thomas Markoff, was also in attendance and said that his grandpa “did not get out much”, thus making the birthday party all the more special. Despite not getting out much, Morrie Markoff does write a blog, which you can check out here.

The belly dancer arrived in a bedazzling white outfit, making Markoff grin from ear to ear. Watching from his chair, he was soon serenaded and appeared to be enjoying every second of it.

Morrie Markoff is not the first centenarian to be in the news for celebrating his birthday in an unorthodox way. Another man, Gioacchino “Jack” Poma of Dallas, Texas celebrated his 100th birthday a while ago, surrounded by strippers in a club and feeling “like a kid in a candy store”. The whole thing apparently was an arrangement planned by his daughter Dina. It definitely was a surprise of a lifetime for him!
