Christmas 2008 World Record - Bucharest

In 2008 a total of 3,939 red and white clad people gathered in front
of the parliament building in Bucharest.
Watched by a representative of Guinness World Records,
they paraded through the city handing out gifts.
When the record was confirmed, Ms Sinigagliesi
 presented a certificate to the mayor, to delight of the massed Santas.
The event easily broke a previous record of 3,618
simultaneously gift-giving Santas, set in Taiwan, in 2003.

In 2008 la Marşul Moşilor organizat şi sponsorizat de Coca Cola şi de
Primăria Capitalei au participat 3939 de moşi, care au dăruit dulciuri timp de 30 de minute,
 îndeplinind astfel condiţiile impuse de Guinness World Record.
Reprezentantul Guinness venit special pentru acest eveniment în Romania, Lucia Sinigagliesi,
a omologat recordul şi i-a oferit primarului diploma care certifică acest succes.
Românii au depăşit pe locuitorii din Taipei, care au deţinut până acum recordul
cu 3.618 de persoane îmbrăcate în Moş Crăciun.

Inspirata serie, Wind, pe care o vad aici, in India, dupa ce am vizitat deja o seama de palate, forturi si temple jaine, care fac aproape 6 giga de poze! Si sunt la jumatatea drumului :)

I'm glad that there was a good turnout to this event because the real reason was for the gifts that they gave. Nice that they could entice so many people to give just by making it a covered event like this. There are good people in the world. This is proof.

Which one are you, Wind? I am teasing, but it looks like an event that would have been fun to participate in and to recall in future years.

As always, the photography is first class.
