Santa record

PORTO WAS full of Christmas cheer on December 14 as more than 14,000 people gathered dressed as Father Christmas to try and break the Guinness World record for number of Father Christmas’s gathered in one place.

The previous record was held by residents and visitors of Derry in Northern Ireland, where 12, 965 Santa’s joined in the record breaking last year.

According to organisers, 17,400 people had signed up to the event but bad weather had put off a lot of participants.

The final total stood at 14,200 Father Christmas’s, enough to make Porto a record breaker.
