The ‘Aurora Teagarden Mysteries’ star went on to mention her faith in God as she noted, “My faith is so the core and foundation of who I am that sometimes I don't verbally acknowledge it because it's just my assumption. It's like, well, ‘If you get Candace, you get faith.’ It's one and the same. It is with me all the time. It is in all that I do. I'm very grateful for God's protection and love.”

Bure also discussed featuring in numerous Christmas movies. She told Fox News Digital, “I never imagined that I would be known for a Christmas movie career. It wasn't a thing back then, and then we made it a thing, which was pretty cool. Since then, it's like, I've done one every year.

“I love it. It truly is [my] favorite time of the year. I love all the things associated with Christmas and how it makes people feel. Warm and happy and merry … and also emotional, depending on what's happened during the seasons or loved ones that have you've lost. It just brings up a lot of emotions. To be associated with something that is so beautiful has been an incredible part of my career.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Bure talked about her way of celebrating Christmas. She said, “We always go to our Christmas Eve service. It's always a candle lit ceremony, which is just phenomenal.
