What was the world's largest Santa Claus gathering?
It may seem that during ever Christmas season there’s a
Santa Claus in every mall, on every street corner and just about everywhere you
go. But would you believe that the largest gathering of Santa Clauses happened
months away from the Christmas season?
It was on September 9, 2007 that Derry Island made
a successful attempt at breaking the previous record for the largest gathering
of Santa Clauses. This previous record was held by the Liverpool City Centre in
the Santa Dash event which took place on December 4, 2005. During this first
record, 3, 921 Santa Clauses were in attendance.
However, if Derry was trying to break the previous
record, they not only did that but smashed it to pieces with an overwhelming
12,965 Santa Clauses that showed up in anticipation for the big day. The event
was organized by Martin Mullan and besides helping get the locals into an early
holiday spirit, it also raised over 100,000 pounds for charities in the area.
