Happy birthday to everyone’s favorite Golden Girl! Television icon Betty White turns 96 years old on Wednesday— and social media couldn’t help but celebrate the legendary actress.

Earlier this month, White told Parade that her secret to a long, healthy and happy life is simply enjoying it. “Accentuate the positive, not the negative,” she told the magazine. “It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.” She added that vodka and hot dogs—”probably in that order”—don’t hurt either.

White, who was born in Illinois on January 17, 1922, has been in the entertainment industry since the early 1950s, according to Biography. She is best known for her roles on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “The Golden Girls.” She has also had roles in films such as “The Proposal,” “You Again” and “The Lorax.” Take a look at some of the birthday wishes for the star on social media below:
