As it turns out, Chord was all about the idea of making a Christmas film. “I read the script and it was really fun and warm and just feel good and Lindsay's great. So it was just an easy no-brainer for me,” he told Nylon.

The actor noted why he loved the holiday vibe of the movie: “Everybody's in a great mood at all times. You can't film anything with Christmas and be upset that you're in that spirit two months before Christmas hits.”
