Christmas is traditionally a time of joy, but for thousands of American men and women deployed overseas this holiday season, it’s a melancholy challenge to prepare for the holidays without their loved ones.

In recognition of all that those deployed do for their country, Christmas Decor is giving a little back to the families of these brave men and women.

Christmas Decor of Roswell, one of hundreds of Christmas Decor franchisees nationwide, will 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.

“These service members and their families are real-life heroes,” Terry Kraft of Christmas Decor of Roswell said in a press release. “We want to show our gratitude for all that they do for our country.”

Roswell residents may nominate deserving military families in their community by filling out the nomination form available at

The deadline for nominations is Nov. 11 of each year to ensure proper time to prepare and plan for the gift of lights.

Christmas Decor, the nation’s leading professional holiday and event decorating franchise, began the Decorated Family Program in 2005 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, now in its seventh season, was created to thank the country’s soldiers for their dedication and support by decorating their family’s homes.
