Even though, most of the filming took place in the Hollywood North or Vancouver, some scenes took place in the Gibsons. A real studio was utilized for the filming purposes where Christmas decorations were made with the artificial snow.
Gibsons is a coastal community of British Columbia located in the Sunshine coast district. The place is known for its craft beverages and is one of the best small towns of Canada for outdoor adventures. Upper Gibsons is along the highway while Lower Gibsonns is down to the hill and ocean.
Canadian provinces are the favorite filming location in between holiday moviemakers who love the working environment of the beautiful provinces and the neighbors who always co-operate with the production staff and the cast members.
