These pillows were used on the set of The Christmas Contest. They are from Candace Cameron Bure’s line of holiday pillows and are available for purchase.
  • BJ Harrison plays Martha in this movie. She has a pretty deep resume, including a ton of Hallmark movies. Check her out in Maid on Netflix as Denise – so good.
  • We weren’t fans of CCB’s hair in this movie. Here’s a look back at some better hairstyles.
  • Did the writers of this movie lean in hard for the conservatives likely watching this movie? Hear us out:
    • “Special Snowflake” was the name of a fellow contestant.
    • There was a Ted Nugent quote used by Candace Cameron Bure. Nugent is often viewed by others as a controversial conservative.
  • Here’s a Yule Log recipe that doesn’t require blueprints to make (via Pioneer Woman).
