Provo, Utah, has set a record.
More than 1,000 people dressed as angels, wise men and religious figures gathered to break the official Guinness record for the most living figures in a Nativity scene.
A camel, a donkey and multiple sheep were also in attendance.
Officially, there were 1,039 participants in the scene. The previous record was 898, set in the United Kingdom.
All of the costumes were sewn by volunteers, who started work only 3 1/2 weeks ago when the idea was concocted by a team of producers including; Jeff Taylor. Jeffrey Harmon, Daniel Harmon, Ricky Ray Butler, Mike Evans and Darrel Eves.
After the Nativity scene, several musicians got together to create a video that will air on YouTube Dec. 12 as part of the ShareTheGift holiday campaign.
Talent includes Nathan Hutson, David Archuleta, the Piano Guys, Peter Hollens, Alex Boye, Stuart Edge, the Shaytards, Devin Supertramp, Kid History, Cute Girl Hairstyles and some members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
