WATCH: Thai children set world record for largest human Christmas tree Christmas is not a holiday in predominantly Buddhist Thailand, but that didn’t stop hundreds of schoolchildren getting into the festive spirit with a world record-breaking effort. One of the country’s largest shopping malls arranged for 852 schoolchildren dressed in green, red and brown hoodies to break the Guinness World Record for the largest human Christmas tree – easily beating the previous record of 672 set in Germany in 2011. To the relief of parents, and the chagrin of a few teenagers, the children were not hoisted onto a human pyramid shaped like a conifer. It was more an exercise in crowd control, grouping the assembled six to 15-year-olds into a tree-like formation on the ground. The record was set in 15 minutes, 29 seconds. Guinness representative Fortuna Burke certified the feat, counting on a clicker as children filed onto an outdoor verandah at Siam Paragon mall, the event’s organiser.

Cinéma sous le Troisième Reich Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La période du cinéma sous le Troisième Reich est l'histoire du cinéma allemand entre 1933 et 1945. Ce cinéma est marqué par l'étatisation progressive des structures artistiques et par des orientations politiques marquées. Il fait suite à la période plus diversifiée artistiquement parlant du cinéma sous la République de Weimar, que d'aucuns ont qualifiée d'« âge d'or du cinéma allemand ».

Pre-Intermediate EFL Lesson Plan: Using Christmas to Teach Holiday Vocabulary As an EFL teacher in Thailand, one of the subjects I always teach about is Christmas. Most of my Thai EFL students are Buddhist, so even though some people in Thailand celebrate Christmas, most Thais don't know much about it. With EFL students from other countries, while they may celebrate Christmas, many don't know the basic Christmas vocabulary in English. That's why it's great to teach an EFL class for pre-intermediate students and talk about Christmas. Expected Learning Outcome - EFL students will understand basic Christmas vocabulary, be able to spell it and be able to use it correctly in simple sentences. Materials and Resources - Whiteboard markers, whiteboard, Christmas vocabulary handout.
