Thai Children Break World Record for Dressing as Christmas Elves

TIME

Santa’s little helpers are getting busy by Thailand’s capital Bangkok.

On Tuesday, 1,792 children dressed in matching red, green and white hats and t-shirts and pointy plastic ears to break the Guinness World Record for the largest Christmas elves gathering, Reuters reports.

The previous record was set when 1,110 little gnomes got together in Wetherby, Great Britain.

“I’m happy to have helped break the world record and steal the title from England,” said 11-year-old Theerathep Noonkao, who attended the event in his wheelchair.

While predominantly Buddhist, Thailand breaks out the holiday sheen every year, as shops and hotels widely decorate for Christmas.
