By now we've all seen homes with various colored porch lights.

Some of the lights we see are decorative for specific holidays.

Other lights are in support of various causes.

There's a cool movement that got underway a few years ago, that is gaining momentum.

What Does a Green Porch Light Mean

When you see a porch light that is lit in green, it most often is a show of support for our military people, both active and non-active.

Many of us have seen someone wearing a military hat and stopped to thank them for their service.

But why not show that support all the time, by switching the bulb of your porch light year-round?

How Did the Green Porch Light Movement Begin

The movement began as a gesture of support over the Veteran's Day and Memorial Day holidays, but more and more people have caught on and lit their porches green.

As this is a relatively new movement, many folks like yourself may just be hearing about it for the first time.

By being the first in your community to light your porch green, you will spark the curiosity of your neighbors, and you'll be able to spread the word about this great way to show support and unity for those who have given to our country.

It's a simple gesture that will have a powerful impact on those who serve or who have served.

Many stores like Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowes, now stock green bulbs for those who want to show support.
