Heavy is the head that wears the holiday crown.
Ten movies in, Candace Cameron Bure still feels the pressure to deliver as the shining star of Hallmark Channel’s popular Countdown to Christmas programming event. Since 2013 , a new film starring Candace, a.k.a. the Queen of Christmas, as the network itself will proudly tell you, premieres the Sunday of Thanksgiving week. And, year after year, that becomes Hallmark’s highest rated movie.
So yeah, the pressure is on for The Christmas Contest, her 2021 outing that reunites Candace with her Fuller House co-star John Brotherton, to deliver, both for the network and her loyal fanbase.
“I want to produce a great film that people are going to love and want to watch over and over again and look forward to it every Christmas season,” Candace recently told E! News while promoting her new Hallmark holiday gift collection, which includes home décor, kitchen accessories and stationery designed by the star.
