(The Root) — Merry Princemas! The mighty Purple One celebrates his 346th 55th birthday today, and he doesn’t look a day over 26, hip replacement and all.
Despite the government’s apparent uninterest in declaring Prince’s birthday a national holiday — and the fact that, as a Jehovah’s Witness, he doesn’t celebrate it himself — Twitter is going crazy in his honor, celebrating with their favorite Prince songs, lyrics, pictures and moments.
Get into the celebration below, and join the party on Twitter!
