Sven Hagemeier’s birthday lasted 46 hours, setting a new Guinness World Record for the longest birthday ever. He accomplished this feat by flying from New Zealand, then to Australia, and then to Hawaii, crossing over multiple time zones (6, by my count) and the International Date Line the process. Rachel Swatman writes for Guinness World Records:
Sven's elongated birthday celebrations beat the previous record set by Nargis Bhimji of Karachi, celebrated her birthday for 35 hours 25min by crossing time zones after flying from Karachi to Singapore and then to San Francisco back in June 1998. […]
The birthday-boy spent the majority of two days in an aeroplane enjoying plane food, working out how to stay comfortable on long-haul flights, and communicating using hand-gestures.
