Hundreds of couples have declared their love under the mistletoe in time for the holiday season during a "kiss-story in the making” record attempt.
Gaylord Palms Resort, appropriately located in Kissimmee, Florida, has a new title for the Most couples kissing under the mistletoe (single venue) with 448 couples puckering up beneath the glow of a six-story Christmas tree as part of the annual yuletide celebrations, a festivity which has taken place at for the last 15 years.
This year shined a bit more brightly than previous years – as it was the first time the hotel had ever attempted a Guinness World Records title.
This new achievement doubles the previous record holder’s total by 233 couples.
Prior to the event, resort staff entertained participants with cheerful Christmas music, a live band, decorative ice sculptures, light displays and other themed attractions which all contributed the merry spirit of the occasion.
The event was organized in partnership with Mentos, who provided guests with mints just before the record-breaking smooch under individually distributed sprigs of mistletoe.
