This time of the year tends to bring out the romantic in all of us and it doesn’t stop when it comes to world records.
To commemorate this year’s Valentine’s Day, the Guinness World Records have shared with FEMAIL a list of the most heart-fluttering world record titles of all time.
From underwater weddings to the largest box of chocolates ever recorded, these records show the lengths people will go to in order to be number one.
In Brazil, people celebrate Valentine’s Day on 12 June and to commemorate the occasion a mural of kisses was constructed in 2012.
Commuters at one of São Paulo’s busiest subway stations were invited to help break the romantic record.
The kisses were made with lip balm kisses on sticky notes and were displayed on a board to form a big giant kiss.
The board measured 18 metres squared and consisted of 13,316 kisses.
