IL Town Not Far From Rockford Is Site of New Hallmark-Style Christmas Movie
Don't hate me for saying this, but yesterday I legit caught myself dreaming of the holiday season and snow falling. Why? No clue, but I have admitted repeatedly that I am WAY too obsessed with the holiday season.
My yuletide obsession is also probably the reason that this story caught my eye on Facebook yesterday. If your days from November 1 through January 1 are spent watching every Christmas movie that Hallmark, Lifetime and ABC Family has to offer, I'm pretty sure you'll dig this news too.
A 'Hallmark-Style' Christmas movie called "Christmas With Felicity" just wrapped filming in Long Grove, Illinois on May 5th, and a lot of the movie scenes highlight different attractions in this historic Illinois town. Several scenes were also filmed at a residence in nearby Barrington, IL. Pretty cool, huh?
The Barrington Scoop says "Christmas With Felicity" is about;
a struggling young baker in no mood for the holidays as she returns to her small hometown, where her festive family and a handsome dairy farmer try to get her back in the Christmas spirit.
Does that storyline not have Hallmark of Lifetime movie written all over it? The Barrington Scoop also said that "the goal is to premiere the film on one of the major networks this coming holiday season."
Here's hoping "Christmas With Felicity" will be one of the film's we're watching on the Hallmark Channel several times a week this coming holiday season.
