Amazing Christmas world records

Games to liven up your gift exchange Are you tired of the same old holiday gift exchange? If so, here are some fun games to enliven this year’s gift giving. win the right to open the present.

Do you love Christmas? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, every year, the spirit of the season drives holiday enthusiasts to per- form impressive feats. Here are some particularly remarkable Guinness World Records that are on theme. • Tallest chocolate Santa. Displayed in a mall in Cantù, Italy in 2011, this giant Santa was 5 metres tall, 2.5 metres in diame- ter and weighed just over 1,700 kilograms. That’s a lot of chocolate! • Most Christmas lights on a home. In 2014, the Gay family from LaGrangeville, New York deco- rated their home with over 600,000 individual lights. The display took two months to build and was set to more than 200 different songs, which passersby could hear when tuned in to a special AM radio station. • Largest artificial Christmas tree. Built by the Arjuna Ranatunga Social Services in Colombo, Sri Lanka in 2016, this tree measured more than 72 metres high. It was erected during a three-day Christmas carnival and was topped by a 6-metre star.

• Cards. Cut some regular playing cards in half and distribute card halves to all parti- cipants. Draw the other card halves from a bowl or hat to determine who gets to choose or steal a gift next. • Story. Rewrite a well-known Christmas story to include the words right, left and across numerous times. To start the game, everyone holds the gift they brought as someone reads the story aloud. Every time an instruction word is said, the pres- ents get passed in that direction. To make sure that everyone receives a gift they’ll enjoy, be sure to decide on a budget and theme beforehand.

• Dice. Every number on the dice comes with an instruction (pass to the left or steal a gift). Take turns rolling the dice until eve- ryone has a present. • Hot potato. This childhood favourite is just as fun to play as an adult. Turn on a holi- day song and pass a present from person to person until the music stops. The person left holding the gift is out of the game but keeps the gift. • Personal trivia. Everyone writes a little- known fact about themselves on the gift they contributed. The others must guess who the information is about in order to

• Largest Christmas ornament. In 2018, a Christmas ornament more than 4.5 metres in diameter was displayed in Dubai Mall, Dubai, United Arab Emi- rates. If you’re hoping to set your own holiday record this year, you better get started. Christmas will be here sooner than you think.
