Hondurans get in the spirit with world record human Christmas tree

Thousands of Hondurans went down in history on Monday by setting a new Guinness world record for the largest human Christmas tree.



Tegucigalpa: Thousands of Hondurans went down in history on Monday by setting a new Guinness world record for the largest human Christmas tree.

"On behalf of the Guinness Book it is a great pleasure to announce that today ... the people of Honduras in Tegucigalpa, with 2,945 people, have broken the record for world`s largest human Christmas tree," said company representative Carlos Martínez.

A smiling President Juan Orlando Hernandez received the certificate outside the presidential residence.

The former record holder had been Thailand, which in 2013 formed one with 852 children.

"It`s officially amazing," Hernandez said after reading the document.

It was a bit of good news for the Central American nation, gripped by poverty and the world`s highest homicide rate.
