How We Began


     In the early 90s, Debbie Lewis began her hobby of buying and collecting Christmas memorabilia when her husband, Charles “Kevin” Payne, was serving a tour of duty in Korea with the Air Force (93-94).  While living in Tampa, the couple visited a Christmas open house at the home of Magali Flores.  Flores, a Cuban immigrant, and her family decorated their home to show others the blessings and miracles that God had given them.

     Debbie and her husband began the Christmas display when they moved to Niceville because to them it is all about sharing and making Christmas bright for others.  They enjoy being a part of families’ traditions of touring the display and taking their family photos. After 20 years of presenting the display, they are definitely a tradition for many Niceville families.
