Tisztelt Szerkesztő Úr!
Nem tudok róla, az ilyesmivel jobb megvárni az ember temetését. Semmilyen születésnapi bulit nem tartok, a feleségem megígérte, hogy meglepetés-party sem lesz. 50 évesnek lenni nem érdem, csak állapot, ezért nem is ünnepeljük.
Üdvözlettel: Orbán Viktor
He said he was not aware of the initiative; these things are better suited for funerals. Then, he added that he doesn't celebrate his birthday and won't be any surprise party either; being 50 years old is not a merit but a condition, because of this, they don't celebrate birthdays.
