A Joyous Christmas: Where it was filmed?
A Joyous Christmas was filmed in Canada in different locations including Vancouver and British Columbia, Langley and Delta.
British Columbia is a popular location for many Christmas films. That’s why in August, What’sFilming calls BC “a perpetual state of Christmas.”
Two of the locations used for A Joyous Christmas include:
- Murrayville Community Memorial Hall in Langley
- Ladner Village in Delta
Ladner Village on Delta Street is a quite familiar location for Christmas filming, a local news site shared. Here, they used environmentally safe snow and blowers in most scenes. A Joyous Christmas was known to be the third (but not the last) Hallmark holiday movie filmed that is shot in that region that year.
Ladner Village is like a beautiful place to visit at Christmas time. Several Facebook posts let us see that they have a Christmas Tree Festival that consists of a gingerbread contest, a countdown to Christmas contest, a tree lighting ceremony, a live musical performance, a visit from Santa, and more. The festival seems to be organized in the same location that the parade was filmed for the movie Finding Santa (another movie aired on Hallmark Channel) and sounds like a regular Hallmark-worthy event.
