THE rice cake makers of Calasiao, Pangasinan made it to the Guinness World Records (GWR) creating “the largest rice cake photo mosaic.’’

The 208-sqm puto mosaic, presented on Dec. 8, 2017, is made of 300,000 different puto cakes, in various hues, prepared by 100 puto makers from the town. The mosaic shows a father feeding a child with puto.

The previous record was held by Japan.

The all-time favorite Christmas carol “Silent Night” is now 200 years old.

The song was first performed on Dec. 24, 1818, at St. Nicholas church in Obendorf, a small town near the city of Salzburg in Austria.

The song is credited to Franz Gruber, a teacher, and the then new parish priest of the village, Father Joseph Mohr.

It was created one cold, snowy Christmas eve.

The lyrics of “Silent Night” began as a poem Mohr had written years prior, called “Stille Nacht.” Mohr asked Gurber to compose a melody for the poem, and thus was born the classic Christmas carol.

The top of the Eiffel Tower leans away from the sun, as the metal facing the sun heats up and expands. It can move as much as 7 inches.

The human nose can remember 50,000 different scents.
