Blue is Beloved

Humanity's favourite colours? It turns out that blue is the most popular colour across the board, followed by green for men and purple for women. 

I expect you know the most popular colours for a car - black and white.  White is most popular for new cars.  Black, silver, gray and red 'round out the top five'.

The "Crazy Christmas" stuff that people do seems remarkable.   I say crazy because the first Guinness record that displays is Canada's Jean-Guy Lacquerer who has a Santa Claus memorabilia collection of 25,104 items.  There is the largest gathering of Santa Clauses:  13,000 participants in the Guildhall Square in Derry City, Northern Ireland, in 2007. And what about the oldest Christmas tree?  Janet Parker of Chippenham, Wiltshire, UK puts 'out' the Christmas tree of her Great Aunt, purchased around 1886. It is 12 inches high so not as creepy as it first seems.

There are lots of records - tallest Christmas tree, tallest floating Christmas tree, most number of lights on a tree, tallest Santa, most expensively ornamented tree, the most Christmas sweaters worn simultaneously.  It seems many people want in on Christmas fame.

In terms of colour fame, there is the Guinness record for the largest human rainbow - 31,000 students and faculty in the Philippines.
