Decorated Family Program Raises Christmas Spirit Among Deserving Military Families with Surprise Home Decorations

Christmas Decor, Leading Holiday Lighting and Decorating Franchise,
Spreads Christmas Cheer in 2015

LUBBOCK, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the thirteenth consecutive year, Christmas
will be boosting the spirits of military families across the
country through its Decorated
Family Program
. With over 300,000 American men and women deployed
throughout the world this holiday season, military families are facing
the challenge of preparing for the holidays without their loved ones. To
give back to the families of these brave men and women in a small way,
Christmas Decor will be creating magical memories with its annual

Christmas Decor, the nation’s leading professional holiday and event
decorating franchise, began the Decorated Family Program in 2003 after a
franchisee attended a holiday dinner party and began to consider all of
the men and women overseas who will not be able to celebrate with those
they love. The program was created to thank the committed soldiers for
their dedication and support by decorating their family’s homes. Each
holiday season, hundreds of Christmas Decor franchisees participate in
this event by donating their products, resources and time to decorate
the homes of local military families with lights, garland, ornaments and
other trimmings as part of the Decorated Family Program.

“I’m very grateful, and very appreciate 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.”

People can nominate deserving military families in their community by
filling out the Decorated Family nominations form available on the Christmas
Decor Facebook Page
. This form allows people to explain why the
family should become a “Christmas Decor Decorated Family.” Winners are
awarded based on their location, to ensure there is a local franchise to
provide the award, and the impact of their story on the judges.

“The look that sneaks up on the faces of the Decorated Family when they
see their fully lit house for the first time is truly magical, and what
the holiday season is all about,” said Brandon Stephens, president of
Christmas Decor. “We continue to push this initiative every year so we
can provide the feeling of warmth and hope to so many deserving military
families across the country. The American servicemen and women are the
true heroes, and decorating their homes while they are deployed, or
physically unable to, is the least we can do to support our courageous

The company is seeking to attract hundreds of nominations that will
total at least 200 decorated homes for the 2015 holiday season. The
deadline for nominations is November 20, 2015.
