HGTV Holiday Special-“Decorating Cents: Home for the Holidays.”

This HGTV special will feature two very special families for whom this Christmas will be especially meaningful. The Schnacky’s of Minneapolis is one of the families featured. The Schnacky’s six year old son Tyler was born with a rare heart condition where only half of his heart is functional. He has had 4 major heart surgeries and several minor ones. It looks like this is the first full year and holiday season that won’t include a hospital stay. The show is a holiday make-over of their home. Included in this make-over is a huge Department 56 Snow Village display complete with a Lionel train set running through it. This one hour special will air nationally on HGTV Thanksgiving weekend in over 90 million homes.
