It’s a mask and a parade as US former President Jimmy Carter celebrates 96th birthday.
Meanwhile, Jimmy is making history as the longest living former US President to grace the earth. But the famous name plans to go small with his celebrations.
According to reports, Jimmy will celebrate the monumental occasion with a quiet sit down dinner. Likewise, he will be accompanied by his wife Rosalynn.

Jimmy Carter took the oath for Presidency in 1977 and stood in office till 1981. However, due to the recent coronavirus pandemic, he receded from the public eye. And this includes his own personal health issues too. In 2019, his health took a turn with some major falls. And that’s why he prefers to stay quiet and away from social media.
Above all, Jimmy Carter even survived a tough battle against a cancer diagnosis, during 2015. Born on October 1, 1924, many refer to him by his original name. This includes James Earl Center Jr. Meanwhile, let’s not forget how he was raised during the Great Depression era.
Carter was the son of a renowned peanut farmer from Georgia. And that’s why peanut farming, politics, and his devotion towards the Baptist faith are an integral part of his childhood. Graduating from the famous Naval Academy at Annapolis in Maryland, he married his wife, Rosalynn Smith afterward.
Today, the couple has three sons and one daughter.And they live as one giant happy family. On the other hand, Carter served a total of 7 years as Naval Officer, before entering politics in 1962.
His great work for the US government is always remembered with the highest regard.Above all, many recall him as making the US government more ‘competent and compassionate. ’
