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!
