METAIRIE – Nominations are now open for Christmas Decor’s 2020 Decorated Family Program, an annual tradition that dates back to 2003.

Each year, friends and neighbors nationwide nominate deserving military families whose loved ones will be deployed outside of the country for the holiday season to receive a free holiday home decorating experience. Participating franchisees like Christmas Decor by Terminix of New Orleans donate products, resources, time and expertise to create holiday magic for winning nominees, crafting glowing tributes to the service and sacrifice of the nation’s active-duty military in communities across the country.
“Each year, tens of thousands of American troops are deployed outside of the United States and its territories in support of foreign conflicts, alliances, and peace-keeping missions,” said Tony Gugliuzza of Christmas Decor by Terminix of New Orleans. “The families of these men and women face celebrating the holiday season without their loved one. We are proud to participate in the Decorated Family program to light up the holidays for these families, and hopefully create a warm glow in the hearts of those who are spending the holidays far from home in service to this country.”
Tony Gugliuzza encourages area residents to nominate the family of a deployed, active-duty service person to be a Christmas Decor Decorated Family for 2020. Go to Christmas Decor’s Facebook page at, click on the Decorated Family Program link, and tell Christmas Decor why the nominee deserves to be selected for this distinction. 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).
The deadline for 2020 Decorated Family nominations is Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2020.
