Church Turns Everyday Into Christmas
May 27, 2009
CHRISTMAS, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Residents of Christmas, Florida, are hoping to walk in a winter wonderland all year round.
The Covenant Community Church along with non-profit organization Christmas Dreams Inc. is working to turn part of the town into a jolly holiday haven and theme park that makes Christmas last all year long.
Rev. Jeff Dixon says, “We’d be able to say it’s always Christmas in Christmas.”
The theme park would be built inside a large warehouse where reindeer fly over a snowy sky, Santa Claus snacks on cookies, and a huge Christmas tree adorned with ornaments and gifts stands in the center.
The project is estimated to cost around $12 million, but it’s worth every penny if it means kids can enjoy the holiday any time of year.
To help build the dreamland, Dreams Inc. is selling memorial bricks for $1,000 and $5,000. So far, they have sold two.
