PH’s latest crazy Guinness Record involves 56,680 candles
Why do we love doing these things?
Is this hot or what?
In Iloilo, the Middle Way Meditation Institute launched a campaign called "World Peace Through Inner Peace," which involved lighting up 56,680 candles at the same time so they could form a giant flaming image of the Philippine map.
Guinness World Records representative Seyda Subasi-Gemici, who was present at the Monday night (April 14) event, said that the feat easily trumped the old record established by Pakistan, when 35,478 candles were lit up to form a company logo in in December 2009.
