Well it is and is located in Western Fort Lauderdale. This is the Nationally Recognized Christmas Home of Mark and Kathy Hyatt also known as Hyatt Extreme Christmas. The Nativity Display spans over 1,836 Square Feet having an area of 54 feet linear by 34 feet deep.
The Hyatt Family will tell you that by far that their favorite part of Hyatt Extreme Christmas is their most Treasured “Nativity Scene” which has its own set of Musical Angel Carolers that help express the true meaning of Christmas in a Hyatt Extreme Christmas way.
This section of the display is adorned with only “White Lights” and has a 34 foot pathway for visitors to walk that leads up to the Manger. Upon entering Visitors are greeted with a Favorite Bible Verse that reads from
“ Jesus said Let the Children Come”.
On the East Wall are 2 Large Signs Posted on each side of the Choir of Angels that read “Pray for Peace on Earth” and the second sign reads “Wisemen Still Seek Him” .
The Manger Floor is lined with Hay having both Mary and Joseph and Wiseman looking down at the wooden cradle. Baby Jesus will appear on Christmas Eve.
As a Christian, I deeply value and understand the importance and significance of Christmas. The Christmas Nativity scene tells the story of the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas morning. Born in a manger, Jesus came to save humankind from sin.
The Hyatt Family believes that the nativity scene portrays the true meaning of Christmas and why we celebrate this very holy day. Without it, none of Christmas nor its traditions would have evolved into the special day that it has become.
Pope John Paul II spoke about the importance of Nativity scenes during the Angelus prayer, noting that they are “a sign of faith in God, Who in Bethlehem came ‘to live in our midst’.”
“As Christmas approaches,” he said, “many places are setting up nativity scenes, such as here in St. Peter’s Square. Large or small, simple or elaborate, the crib is a familiar and very expressive representation of Christmas. It is part of our culture and art, but above all it is a sign of faith in God, Who in Bethlehem came ‘to live in our midst’.”
Christ Born of Mary
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Glory in the Highest
Mary was expecting the baby and it was almost time for her to give birth. Bethlehem was a small town and there was no place for them to stay. Finally, Joseph found a cave-like place where they could rest. This place was used by shepherds to protect their sheep in stormy weather. It was here that Mary gave birth to Jesus. The baby was wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in the straw in the manger.
Now, that night the shepherds were out in the fields guarding their sheep. Suddenly, there was a bright light which startled the shepherds. The light was so bright that it turned the night into daylight. Of course, the shepherds were frightened. Nothing such as this had ever happened. Soon an angel appeared and calmed them. The angel said:
“Fear not for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior; which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger” .
Then a larger group of angels appeared. They praised and glorified God and sang, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, and good will toward men.” Hyatt Extreme Christmas Welcomes and Invites everyone to join us and walk though our Christmas Display and help us celebrate this very special holiday.
We look forward to seeing you, Merry Christmas from the Hyatt Family!
