Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Somewhere in that photo above is Jean-Guy Laquerre, who holds the Guinness World Records for having the world’s largest collection of Santa Claus memorabilia.
Neatorama reports that Laquerre, a 74-year-old retired geography teacher from outside Montreal, has devoted all his time to his Santa collection, which he proudly displays between Dec. 15 and Jan. 15 as an invitation-only exhibit in his house.
I’ve been collecting since 1988,” he said. “Various people give me these items as gifts. I purchase them here and there, and then friends will give them to me.”
If you want to beat Jean-Guy, you’ve got your work cut out for you: he’s got 25,189 items!
