1.The largest Christmas bauble ornament
Dubai might not be where you’d expect to find the world’s largest Christmas bauble ornament and yet that’s exactly where it is. The Dubai Mall set the record in 2018 when it unveiled the metallic bauble, which measures almost 6.59 metres in height, 4.68 metres in width and weighs a whopping 1,100 kilograms.
It took a team of 15 people two nights to assemble the bauble – which was flown in inside 12 crates and three containers – and another night was spent hoisting it up with a forklift, spider lift and two boom lifts.
Visitors to The Dubai Mall in 2021 can catch a glimpse of the bauble, as it currently hangs within the Star Atrium as part of the mall’s festive decor.
- The tallest plastic bottle sculpture
The tallest plastic bottle sculpture in the world was in the shape of a Christmas tree and was achieved by Caroline Najib Chaptini and the Municipality of Chekka in Chekka, Lebanon, on December 14, 2019. More than 30 people helped to arrange 120,000 plastic bottles to create the 28.1-metre-tall sculpture.
- Largest collection of Christmas bauble ornaments
Over the years, Christmas baubles have become one of the most important festive decorations, with personalised and limited-edition versions cropping up.
One resident of Swansea in Wales is such a fan that she has acquired a Guinness World Record-breaking collection of 1,760 bauble ornaments, as of December 1, 2021.
The selections of Sylvia Pope, also known as “Nana Baubles”, come from different parts of the world, as well as famous shops in the UK such as Liberty London and Harrods, and are spread throughout her house, even hanging from the ceiling. She believes that her collection will go beyond 2,000 in the next year or two.
- Most letters to Santa collected in 24 hours
This fun record was broken by Dubai’s Global Village on December 18, 2020. It was part of the global exhibition’s 25th anniversary campaign to break 25 World Records over the course of its 25th season, which ran from October 25, 2020 to May 2, 2021. A total of 2,144 letters to Santa were collected in 24 hours.
- Largest collection of Christmas brooches
A big fan of the festive season, Adam Wide in Berlin achieved this record with a collection of 7,929 Christmas brooches, verified on December 2, 2021.
Wide started assembling brooches in 1984 and first set this record in 2008 with 542 items. Since then, he has broken his own record five times to reach the new total – and he has even got a few more pieces after he broke the most recent record. He estimates that his collection is worth £350,000 ($469,747).
