13,000 Santas In Derry.

Hi I am Alex from Ireland aged 12.

More than 13,000 Santas have taken part in a record breaking charity event on the walls of Derry a city in Northern Ireland.

Thousands of pounds were raised for a good cause after a sea of red and white descended on the city vantage point.

This is the first time the Guinness World Record attempt has been in Northern Ireland.

The total was almost double the amount in Las Vegas during a recent attempt on the record.

There was a carnival atmosphere in the city with live music and carol singing.

A spokeswoman for the record said it was the most amazing sight you have ever seen.

One participant said: “Not only have we done it, but we’ve sent a message around the world. This is officially Santa City.”

The procession of rosycheeked and bearded Santas took longer than an hour to walk along the walls.

Organisers had hoped for 10,000 Santas and were delighted with the final tally.

We are getting Holidays tomorrow.
We all want to wish you all a Happy and safe Christmas and a Happy New Year also.
