“As immigrants, we feel blessed to live in this great country, and we recognize the sacrifice made by military members and their families,” said Michael Snaid, co-owner of the Cinnamon Bear Stores. “These soldiers are fighting all over the world during holidays, birthdays and sports games. As Christmas approaches, our family wanted to honor these families and make them feel special by showing them New York City’s bright Christmas lights.”
