Candace Cameron Bure’s Christmas Wish
Speaking to Good Housekeeping, the Queen of Christmas shared how people send her letter how her Christmas movies are lifechangers or help them remember those who are gone. She realizes that although the two-week filming schedule is incredibly crazy, the fans are why she continues to push herself to make these movies.
She says it is because “The holiday season is all about loving on people in your life.” What makes Christmas Town even more special is what she believes “covers a bigger sense of family that I hope will make people think about all of the kids in foster care waiting and dreaming about having a family one day.”
What she is really saying is that she believes in family and Christmas miracles. Candace wants families to gather together, with some hot chocolate and enjoy Christmas Town. She wants people to feel “so good” at the end of the movie.
