Longest Greeting

The most charming, faithful, forgiving and caring person you will ever meet, in your life is your mother and she will always be the reason behind your safety and happiness. 

Dubai is no stranger when it comes to world records. The city has once again achieved a Guinness World Record, bringing it in with a greeting this time.

The emirate has made the world’s longest ever greeting card mosaic on August 9, 2016.

In an attempt to break a Guinness World Record, a new campaign was reminding people to take a minute to thank their mothers by signing a thank you note at three UAE malls. Thousands of visitors participated at Carrefour Hypermarkets in Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif and Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi and signed up their own ‘Thank You Mum’ cards.

The longest greeting card mosaic in the world is now displayed on Shaikh Zayed Road, next to Jebel Ali metro station.

The card, which measures 110.13 metres long, was part of an initiative organised by Proctor and Gamble (P&G) in partnership with Majid Al Futtaim Carrefour stores.

“Mums are the ones who keep on supporting families through everything. For mums, their children always come first. We wanted to give our consumers a way to give something back and say ‘thank you’ to their mums for the role they have played in raising strong children,” said Khalid Adawi, Director for P&G in the Arabian Peninsula.

Speaking about the criteria required to achieve a Guinness World Record attempt, Talal Omar, Mena country manager at Guinness World Records, said: “Breaking a Guinness World Record is no mean feat; an attempt must fulfill key criteria before it will even be considered — it must be measurable, breakable, verifiable and standardisable, among others.”
