  • Lubbock, TX (1888PressRelease) September 24, 2014 - For the twelfth consecutive year, Christmas Decor will be boosting the spirits of military families across the country through its Decorated Family Program. With over 270,000 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 program.

    Christmas Decor, the nation's leading professional holiday & 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 our country's soldiers for their dedication and support by decorating their family's homes.

    Each holiday, hundreds of Christmas Decor franchisees nationwide participate in this event by donating their products, resources and time to decorate the homes of local military families as part of the Decorated Family Program.

    "The holidays can be difficult for families with loved ones overseas both emotionally and with decorating, and we always look forward to doing our part to help make their holidays a little bit brighter," said Brandon Stephens, President of Christmas Decor. "The American men and women fighting overseas are true heroes and launching this initiative, decorating these deserving families' homes, is the least we can do to support our courageous troops."

    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. People can also post their Decorated Family stories on the Christmas Decor fan page on Facebook to enter a contest to receive a special prize. The lucky winning families will be the ones with the most "like" votes on the Facebook page.

    "Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would win. With my husband scheduled to be deployed during Christmas, we knew the holidays would be a tough time for us," said Agatha Shim, military wife and mother of two daughters, based on Joint Base Lewis-McChord during the 2013 holiday season. "My kids were jumping with joy when they saw our home decorated. Smiles were ear-to-ear. It turns out that my husband was able to make it home for the holidays and we were all so appreciative of the work done by Christmas Decor. This made our family Christmas very special and is something we will never forget."

    Operating in over 375 markets and 48 states, Christmas Decor, Inc. is the largest professional holiday & event decorating franchise. The company offers a complete decorating service program including display design, installation, maintenance, and removal of holiday lighting and decorations. Now the franchise is in the enviable position of being able to give back to communities.

    The company is seeking to attract hundreds of nominations that will total at least 200 decorated homes for the 2014 holiday season. The deadline for nominations is November 19, 2014. For more information on the Decorated Family Program, visit http://christmasdecor.net/cdi2/decorated-family.
