Christmas Decor Lights up Lives and Homes of Military Families with Holiday Decorations

Leading Holiday Lighting and Decorating Franchise Launches Fourteenth
Consecutive Decorated Family Program

IRVING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#christmasdecor–More than 220,000 American men and women are deployed overseas this
season; leaving military families across the nation to spend the
holidays without their loved ones. To boost spirits and spread holiday
cheer, Christmas
will be launching its fourteenth consecutive Decorated
Family Program
to transform homes into winter wonderlands.

Founded in 2003, the Decorated Family Program began after a Christmas
Decor franchisee attended a holiday dinner party, only to leave thinking
about all of the men and women overseas who could not celebrate with
loved ones. As a way to give back and thank the committed soldiers for
their dedication, Christmas Decor began decorating military family’s
homes to ignite holiday spirit and create magical memories. Now a
seasonal tradition, hundreds of franchisees nationwide participate by
donating products, resources and time to decorate the homes of local
military families with lights, garland, ornaments and other trimmings.
Following the decorating process, each decked out home is revealed
during a surprise ceremony.

“The initial look on the faces of each family member upon seeing their
house fully lit for the first time is truly magical,” said Brandon
Stephens, president of Christmas Decor. “Seeing how much happiness our
decorations bring to these families is why we continue to push this
initiative every year. Our servicemen and women are real life heroes and
decking out their homes while they’re deployed or physically unable to
is the least we can do to show our gratitude and support our courageous

Community members are encouraged to nominate deserving military families
by completing the Decorated Family submission form available on the Christmas
Decor Facebook Page.
This form provides a place to share the
family’s story and explain why they should become a “Christmas Decor
Decorated Family.” Winners will be awarded based on the impact the story
has on the judges, as well as location to ensure there is a local
franchise to provide the services. The company seeks to attract hundreds
of nominations that will result in beautifully decorated homes for the
2016 holiday season. The deadline for nominations is November 11, 2016.

“I’m very grateful, and very appreciative of the amount of support my
wife has gotten and that our family has gotten while I was gone,” said
Tim Newman, who had just returned to his family in Mahomet, IL after his
third tour oversees. After the surprise reveal of the decorations he
exclaimed, “This is truly amazing.”
