13 most romantic records
Regardless of whether you are in a relationship or not, it is fairly easy to catch the general atmosphere of Valentine's Day. Many couples on this day decide to celebrate Valentine's Day in a big way, setting the most romantic world records.
1. The longest kiss
Ekkachey's husband and wife and Lakshana Tiranarath joined their lips in the longest kiss that lasted 46 hours and 24 minutes to celebrate Valentine's Day, breaking a new world record recorded in the Guinness Book of Records. The couple took part in a competition in 2011 in Thailand, where as many as seven pairs broke the previous world record of 2009, which was 32 hours and 7 minutes.
2. The longest kiss under water
In order to put this record you need two people who are hardy enough to hold their breath for a long time. The Italians Michele Fucarino and Elisa Lazzarini turned out to be just such brave people, who were able to kiss under the water for 3 minutes and 24 seconds.
3. The most expensive kiss
Are you a fan of Sharon Stone? Probably not as zealous as Joni Rimm, who laid out a tidy sum of $ 50,000 for one kiss with the actress. The kiss was part of a charity auction that was arranged to help people with AIDS and HIV.
4. The largest number of concurrent marriages under water
On Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2001, 34 couples from 22 countries simultaneously exchanged wedding oaths at a depth of 10 meters under water near Kradan Island in southern Thailand. The underwater wedding ceremony now attracts many tourists who gather every year for the Day of All Lovers to seal their union under water.
5. The longest hug
It seems very strange, but the longest hug in the world was a whole day shorter than the longest kiss. The world record was set by Ron O’Neil and Teresa Kerr from Canada, who continuously hugged for 24 hours and 33 minutes.
6. The longest hugs marathon
Did you know that January 21 is National Hug Day? Six pairs from the UK knew exactly about this when they broke the record for the longest embrace marathon, which lasted 24 hours and 44 minutes, although two couples dropped out of the marathon, as they opened their arms.
You ask, what's the difference between a hugs marathon and a usual hugs record? The only difference is that marathon runners are allowed to take a 5-minute break every hour to eat and go to the toilet.
7. Largest group hug
If you do not want to hug one person for a long time, you can always take part in a large hug. The current record belongs to 10,554 couples, who hugged on May 7, 2010 in Ottawa, the capital of Canada.
8. The largest number of hugs per day
Those who are most loving can try to hug as many people as possible in a 24-hour period. This record will be very difficult to beat, as the current record belongs to Jeff Ondash (Jeff Ondash), who managed to make 7777 hugs per day on Valentine's Day.
9. Oldest couple to marry
Do not think that in order to break the record you need to be young and hardy. So the oldest couple (based on the cumulative age), which entered into marriage, were Francois Frenandez and Madeleine Francineau, who were married in 2002 at the age of 96 and 94 years, respectively.
10. The longest marriage
Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher checked on themselves the oath “until death do us part”, having been married for more than 86 years. They were married in May 1924 in North Carolina in the United States.
11. The greatest number of repeated marital vows
Although this record is far from the longest marriage, Lauren (Lauren) and David Blair (David Blair) celebrated the largest number of ceremonies to strengthen marriage, exchanging vows more than 100 times, having been married for 27 years.
12. The largest chocolate in the world
One of the constant attributes of Valentine's Day is chocolate. If you want to truly impress your sweetheart, then think about a giant chocolate called Kiss (kiss), created by Hershey in 2007, which weighs 13,852 kg.
13. The most expensive diamond
If girls' best friends are diamonds, then a 100-carat diamond sold for $ 16,561,171 dollars in 1995 is the best friend you can only dream of.
