Thailand Human Christmas Tree

852 Thai students set a new Guinness World Record for forming the largest human Christmas tree in Bangkok on Friday.

At one of the largest shopping malls in Thailand, the children, ages six to 15, broke the previous German-held record of 672, the Associated Press reports. Christmas is not an official holiday in predominantly Buddhist Thailand, though stores do decorate for the season.

Thais set other world records this year too: In February, 4,483 people set a world record for most people hula-hooping in one place. On Valentine’s Day, a Thai couple set the world record for longest kiss, at 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds.
