A pair of 100-year-old twins in Italy celebrated a joint “200th” birthday on January 23, surrounded by loved ones and even their local mayor.

Francesca and Maria Ricciardi were both born in 1923, and have lived their entire lives in Anzano di Puglia, a small Italian village of about 1,200 people. According to Reuters, the two women worked as farmers and embroiderers throughout their lives.

“It’s a gift from the Lord to get to this age. With the life we had, we could never have made it to 100 years old,” Francesca said.
