World's Largest Christmas Stocking

Toronto is the proud home of what is now officially recognized as the World's Biggest Christmas Stocking.

The stocking's final length was measured at 27.46 metres (90 feet 1 inch) long and 11.3 metres (37 feet 1 inch) wide (heel to toe), shattering the old record established on Jan. 11, 2006 by shoppers and staff of the MetroCentre in Gateshead, UK which measured 19.25 metres (63 feet 2 inches) long and 8.23 metres (27 feet) wide (heel to toe).

I would LOVE one of those stockings! I settled for a much funkier yet smaller version when I got one for my niece yesterday (, which is probably good, because I don't think I could afford the St. Nick goodies for the one in Toronto! Thanks for sharing!

And we might also be the record holders for largest "Blue Screen of Death", although not proud.

Any other cities as gung ho about Guinness World Record day?
