‘Long Lost Christmas’ Was Filmed in Agassiz-Harrison, British Columbia, Canada
“Long Lost Christmas” was filmed in the British Columbia region of Canada, including Agassiz-Harrison. Filming wrapped on September 30, according to Ayres’ social media posts.
According to the Trailtimes — a news website from the town of Trails, British Columbia, — Ayres surprised several passersby who were looking at the decorations along Pioneer Avenue and recorded a brief video of the encounter on social media.
In the article’s video, Ayres says: “I think it’s such an honest reaction. It’s super quick. What I love about it is it’s really brought all these Hallmark fans from all over. I wish I would’ve kept it going because even the husband was like, ‘Oh, I know all your movies!’”

The private residence that was used as my hero’s log home couldn’t have been more perfect, inside and out. Filming at the end of summer in unusually warm conditions meant that the ‘snow’ you see in this photo is actually sheets of white felt.”
