Whether it’s breaking the record for the “Largest Number of ABBA Impersonators,” or “Most People in a Single Pair of Pants,” the Guinness Book of World Records Day is a time to band together to achieve history. The event has been celebrated for more than 7 years, with nearly 300,000 people participating last year alone.
