For The Record

I suppose, as it is Christmas Eve now, it might be a nice idea to provide some videos of other people's Christmases. So since I'm not up for providing anything bummer-worthy this particular stretch of days, here's a compendium of videos from this Christmas season, with one common theme: each and every video depicts a Christmas-themed Guinness world record attempt, the category of which is provided in parentheses.

COLLEGE STATION, TX, UNITED STATES (Largest gingerbread house; successful)

WAUKESHA, WI, UNITED STATES (Most people caroling; still waiting for official verification but projected to be successful)

COBOURG, ON, CANADA (Heaviest sleigh pulled by Santa Claus; successful)

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL (Tallest floating Christmas tree; successful)

BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND (Largest simultaneous cracker pull; successful)

STRATFORD-UPON-AVON, ENGLAND (Most people in Christmas jumpers; failed)

GRAVESHAM, WALES (Largest gathering of Santa's elves; verification undetermined but believe me, it doesn't matter in the slightest)

IASI, ROMANIA (Largest gathering of Santa's elves; successful)

WAIT, HOLD ON; NORTH YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND (Also largest gathering of Santa's elves; successful)

NO, STOP THE PRESSES; WORTHING, ENGLAND (Also largest gathering of Santa's elves; successful)

BANGKOK, THAILAND (Most people in a human Christmas tree; successful)

CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA (Most lights used in a decoration; successful)
