See who broke the record for the largest gathering of Christmas elves ever, stealing title from England

On Tuesday, a huge collection of children between the ages of 9 and 15 descended on a shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand, to break the record for the largest gathering of Christmas elves ever.

The youngsters were dressed in traditional elf costumes, complete with pointy ears, and assembled themselves into the shape of the word “Siam,” the original name of the country, reported Reuters.

Even though 14 children were disqualified for not putting on their elf ears, the group was declared Guinness World Record winners with as many as 1,792 elves. The group broke the previous record of 1,110 elves reached in 2013 by participants from Stockeld Park and Martin House Children’s Hospice in Wetherby, North Yorkshire, England, according to Guinness World Records official website.

“It’s going to be hard for the next country to break this record,” said Richard Stenning, a Guinness World Records representative.

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

It sounds like they had an elfin good time.
