American Christmas was founded by Marvin Schwam in 1968 as an offshoot of his business selling artificial plants and flowers. It was acquired by MK Illumination in 2017, and creates commercial Christmas displays used by retail stores, building lobbies, corporate headquarters, hotels, malls and more. Services include design and development, manufacturing and assembly, distribution, installation, removal, refurbishment, and storage. The Mount Vernon warehouse has 70 full-time employees but expands to over 400 during the holiday season.
Tickets sales will be donated to several locally based charities, including The Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club, North East STEM Academy, Youth Community Outreach Program and the Ronald McDonald House.
