How do we do this?
We counted just over 2000,000 lights and it adds up fast. The walls are covered from end to end with LED green lights. Total boxes used where 192 boxes or 19,200 lights. In 2012 Hyatt Extreme went Green so Power Management is much easier.
Our Believe in the Magic of Christmas Sign that is displayed over our Garage Door is made with Chicken Wire. We went to a Kinkos Xerox where they can print out Large Sheet Paper to use a template and then affixed that to the Chicken Wire.
Same LED Lights are used on the giant Christmas tree.
To make the tree look real and not stake all those lights into the ground we use PVC and make a circle with legs about 24 inches high and attach the lights to it for a clean edge to the tree.
The Lollipops that line our Driveway were cut with a circular saw and then hand painted with different designs.
Santa’s Workshop has three walls and open in the front. This is constructed with left over Plywood from past Hurricanes and then cut out and painted. The wood is attached to a PVC Frame and a Tarp is used to cover the roof.
We built and grandstand and wired all the carolers and angels together for a look that is unmatched.

Cut outs were made of our left over Hurricane Plywood to create Santa’s Toy Shop, Santa’s Candy Shop.
Blow Molds can be become very Fragile and often times can crack. When this happens save your plastic milk cartons and use this to repair. Cut out plastic to fit and we use a Hot Glue Gun to repair. Works like a charm!! When the Painting begins to fade go to your local Craft Store and get special craft paint for plastic and freshen them up to look like new.
