Families will be selected by the company to receive products, time and expertise in decoration.

Christmas Decor Inc., Irving, Texas, will again be sponsoring military families to be eligible for holiday decorations with its Decorated Family Program.

Since 2003, Christmas Decor franchisees have been decorating the homes of military families whose loved ones are deployed outside of the country for the holiday season. Christmas Decor encourages people nationwide to nominate the family of a deserving active-duty service member in their community to become a Decorated Family this year. Christmas Decor franchisees will donate products, resources, time and expertise to create glowing tributes at this year’s Decorated Family homes to honor all the service members who will be separated from their families this holiday season.

“Each year, the families of tens of thousands of active-duty men and women are deployed outside of the United States and its territories during the holiday season,” says Brandon Stephens, president of Christmas Decor. “The Decorated Family Program can literally light up the holidays for some of these families while sending a glowing message of thanks to all service members and their families for their dedication and sacrifice.”

Anyone may nominate a local family for this distinction on Christmas Decor’s Facebook page. Click on the Decorated Family Program link and complete a form explaining why the nominated military family should be selected as a Christmas Decor Decorated Family for the 2021 holiday season. Christmas Decor corporate will review all the shared stories and select from the nominated families in each community. Decorated Families will be chosen based on the impact of their story on the judges and the family’s location to ensure there is a participating local franchise to provide the award.

Nominations close on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, 2021.

“This year, we hope to decorate more homes than ever before,” says Stephens. “The more nominations we receive, the more Decorated Families we are able to recognize. Please help us honor a brave active-duty man or woman in your community who will be away from home for the holidays this year by nominating their family to become a 2021 Decorated Family.”
