Church Breaks Nativity Scene Record
A Florida pastor said members of his church set a world record by gathering 2,150 Nativity scenes in the same place. Pastor James Brown of the Oasis Church in Pembroke Pines said congregants gathered 2,150 Nativity scenes at the church Saturday in the form of figurines, tapestries, Christmas tree ornaments and crayon-drawn pictures. Brown said three counters and a notary public verified the collection did indeed beat the 1,802 Guinness World Record set by an Italian collector. He said paperwork is being submitted to Guinness to make the record official.
