Megan and Wendy recap and review Open By Christmas which premiered on the Hallmark Channel on November 12, 2021 as part of the channel’s Countdown to Christmas holiday line up. The movie stars Alison Sweeney, Erica Durance, and Brennan Elliott. Nicky finds an unopened Christmas card in an old textbook while helping her parents downsize. Will she find the person who left her the card or will spend another holiday single and lonely?

News and Notes for “Open By Christmas”
- Open By Christmas was filmed in Vancouver and Vancouver Island in September 2021
- Original working title was called “Christmas Be Mine”
- Alison Sweeney was one of the Executive Producers on this movie
Ali Sweeney is definitely one of Hallmark Channel’s sweethearts. She has been in 16 Hallmark movies and you can see the complete list here.
We love that Brennan Elliott has already decorated for Christmas! He’s definitely Megan’s kind of people. Elliott last stared in Christmas in Vienna in 2020.
Was That the Gilmore Girls House?
Wendy thought that the home purchased for Simone might be the Gilmore Girls house located on the Warner Bros. lot in Los Angeles but all signs point to no. First, because the movie was shot in Vancouver. And, two, take a close look. They aren’t the same house but they sure do look similar!
