It’s finally the most wonderful time of year.

The 2021 Countdown To Christmas on Hallmark Channel officially begins Friday, Oct. 22. This officially allows you to skip the Thanksgiving and Halloween candy in favor of peppermint mochas or candy canes. 

And what better to way to celebrate the start of the merry annual tradition than by getting some scoop on Hallmark fan-favorite Candace Cameron BureThe next movie is coming soon. The Christmas Contest?

Set to premiere Nov. 28, the Sunday of Thanksgiving week, a.k.a. The annual timeslot of CCB, the film reunites Bure Fuller Houseco-star John BrothertonEx-partners find themselves in a Christmas contest to win money to support the charity of their choice. You can guess the next step. 

After their Netflix sitcom came to an end last year, it was actually Candace’s idea to have John, who played DJ Tanner’s love interest Matt, serve as her leading man in her 2021 Christmas movie. In fact, she even told CelebHomes News that he was her “dream” co-star when we caught up with the twosome at Hallmark’s Holiday Headquarters in Los Angeles for the kickoff event. That’s a high compliment from the queen of Christmas.
