New Zealanders are accustomed to a long and hard work day and they are in for a big night if the country can expect a peak of 10.6pm this evening.
The peak of the night will be a record breaking seven hours and 40 minutes, breaking the previous record of 8.3 hours and 43 minutes set by the first of August, 2015.
The peak is due to start at 8.15pm and it will be followed by a two-hour sleepover in Wellington.
The record-breaking night was achieved by Auckland resident Chris T. from the capital city and his family at the Ritz Hotel in Auckland, New Zealand, last night.
Chris, who has been a resident of the city for three years, is the first person to break the overnight record in the city.
Chris said he has been to New Zealand for eight nights, but he has never set a new record in Auckland.
“I have always been a night owl and it’s never happened before,” Chris said.
“We just need to get through it, and if we can get through the night, then it’ll be a good night.”
Chris has spent the past three years in Auckland trying to break his sleep-over record.
“We’re trying to do it for the whole of the year.
This is my last night here and it was just a matter of time,” Chris explained.
Chris’ wife, Laura, and daughter, Nika, also set a record at 8pm last night, breaking her previous record by more than an hour.
Laura, who is also a night-owl, said she was inspired to set a New Zealand record because of her love of the country.
“It’s a great country, so it’s always good to break a record.
I don’t think it’s fair for the other people out there to do what I’m doing,” Laura said.
Laura and Chris set the record on a Tuesday night, just over two months ago.
Laura said she has been doing her best to break her record but that there were many people who didn’t believe it was possible.
Laura and her family have had to sleep at different locations throughout the week to ensure they would be able to keep a close watch on the record-setting record-breaker.
When it comes to keeping up with the record, Laura said the next record-holder is the Guinness World Records Book holder for the most consecutive days sleeping at the same place.
Laura has set another New Zealand records for the longest uninterrupted night of sleep over a night in the Guinness Book of Records and the longest time she spent at a hotel room.
“My husband and I have been at a lot of different places over the past two years.
I’ve been to different cities in New Zealand,” Laura told the Herald.
Laura’s husband, Mark, who also set the New Zealand world record, said the sleepover record was a great milestone in his life.
“The sleepover was great, but I didn’t think that we could beat it.
I didn, but now I can’t wait for the night to come,” Mark said.
