One of the sweetest TV traditions this time of year is “25 Days of Christmas”. Our family looks forward to this magical line up every year. The full 25 Days of Christmas line up for 2018 is amazing! This year, I was thrilled to chat with the talent behind “Pop Up Santa” as well as “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings”. What better time is there than during the holidays to watch deserving people experience love and magic beyond their wildest dreams?
While in Los Angeles, I was able to sit down for a few minutes with Allison and Twitch to talk about the shows they are working on and also just life in general. They were personable and funny and clearly passionate about what they are doing.
- They REALLY love one another. They both complimented one another throughout the interview, laughed, and you could just feel the love!
- They have 3 Christmas trees. Twitch thinks this is nonsense. Allison feels they need one more.
- Twitch began dancing in high school, Allison began dancing in grade school.
- They have a little boy, Maddox as well as Allison’s daughter Weslie who are clearly the loves of their lives.
Ok, on the off chance that you do not know who tWitch and Allison are, be prepared to fall in love with them right now….
Here is a little about each of the shows this fantastic couple participated in this year. Allison and Twitch really did choose two amazing shows to partner with. You can tell their genuine love for people when they talk about why being a part of these moments in people’s lives was so important to them.
“Pop-up Santa Holiday Special”* #PopUpSanta
For the first time ever as a 90-minute holiday special, Freeform’s “Pop Up Santa Holiday Special” has teamed up with sponsors to celebrate the spirit of the season through heartwarming moments including a home giveaway, a surprise baby shower at a military base, a family reunion of epic proportions, a celebration for two very special children at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and more. Hosted by Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker, the special follows celebrity guests including ballerina Misty Copeland, former NFL athlete DeMarco Murray, “The Fosters’” Sherri Saum, Tommy Martinez from new Freeform drama “Good Trouble,” a special Marvel guest and, of course, Freeform Santa as they team up with Freeform to spread holiday cheer. The “Pop Up Santa Holiday Special” aired on Monday December 3rd.
In a tear-jerking sneak peek from “Pop Up Santa,” the Brantley Family of Clarksville, Tennessee, is about to experience some holiday magic. After a devastating fire in December 2017, Army veteran Stephen Brantley, his wife Iliana and their four children lost their home and all of their possessions, including photographs and Stephen’s war medals. With the help of former NFL athlete DeMarco Murray and his wife, actress Heidi Mueller, the Brantleys are in for an incredible surprise that will change their lives forever. The “Pop Up Santa Holiday Special” is executive produced by Jack Mori and Wendy Burch.
