The fourth entry in the Home For Christmas series, “Time for Them to Come Home for Christmas,” is based on the novel by Travis Thrasher and Dorothy Shackleford. The sappy romance film centers on a young female who suffers memory loss after an accident and finds herself in a small-town hospital. Only a newspaper clipping discovered with her, which contains an invite to the Charleston Christmas celebration and a puzzling note from a guy named Mark, can reveal her true identity.

The amnesiac lead, now going by the name Jane Doe, embarks on a cross-country road trip with the handsome nurse Paul to arrive in Charleston by Christmas to begin solving the riddles of her past. However, the two unintentionally become closer due to their shared struggle with personal traumas. Viewers get a sense of the festive period as they follow their amorous adventure through winter wonderlands with Christmas themes. You’ve come to the right place if the stunning settings in the movie captured your interest as well and left you wondering where it was shot.

Time For Them to Come Home for Christmas: Filming Locations

The majority of the British Columbian scenery was used in the Hallmark film. It’s not unusual that the production team chose to film the Peter Benson-directed film in this area of the Great White North because the snow-capped natural landscapes of the area can provide a great site for shooting a Christmas movie. To better understand the film’s production, let’s look at some of the finer points.

Abbotsford in British Columbia

The romantic drama film’s primary photography began in Abbotsford. The region’s production was completed somewhere between September and October 2021. The city, which is only one hour’s drive from Vancouver, provides its residents with a wealth of artistic, cultural, and recreational options. People from all over the world reside in the area, which is a testimony to its tolerance and openness. The area also boasts a wide range of ethnicities.

Abbotsford not only has the strategic benefit of being near Vancouver, but it also offers a lot of interesting, underused locations that, when combined with its production services and easy access to skilled crew, make the place a fantastic shooting location.
