Human Christmas Tree
At one of the country’s largest shopping malls in Bangkok, 852 children, dressed in red, green and brown hoodies, joined together to form the largest human Christmas tree. They broke the old record of 672 participants from Germany set in 2011.
Children weren’t actually STACKED one on top of the other when they formed this huge Christmas tree. The children, ages 9 to 15, were actually just grouped into a Christmas tree pattern on the ground, taking just 15 minutes and 29 seconds.
Most of the children breaking the world record of forming the largest human Christmas tree don’t even celebrate the holiday. And most were confused as to who’s birth was actually being celebrated. With the main question being, “Is it Santa’s birthday?” But the children did understand the concept of getting presents. As a souvenir, they all got to keep their hoodies.
A representative from the Guinness Book of World Records was there to verify the new record, before all the children were asked to wave as a drone flew overhead to capture the Christmas tree image.
Other records were also set in Thailand this past year. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, a couple set the world’s record for the longest kiss lasting 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds on Valentine’s Day. Also in February, a record for the most people dancing with hula hoops at the same time in the same place was broken. In case the curiosity is getting the better of you….almost 5,000 people rotated hula hoops for seven minutes.
