Last week we had a chance to talk all things Freeform 25 Days of Christmas Cheer with Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker. We spoke about holidays, personal traditions and the joy of making someone else’s day. Of course, we had to talk about Pop Up Santa and Disney Fairy Tale Weddings. Two shows that the lovely couple host.
Thank you Disney for your invite to the Mary Poppins Returns event which included a stop to ABC to talk about #25DaysofChristmasEvent. All opinions shares are 100% my own

The “Pop Up Santa Holiday Special” airs on Monday, Dec. 3, at 9:30-11:00 p.m. EST/PST.
Allison Holker shares on one of her Pop Up Santa Experiences:
“We held a baby shower for seventy-five women that were all pregnant, and we surprised them with a baby shower that was just super epic. We gifted them with everything that they would need. These women are all from the army, they are so brave. They go through so much that I will never fully understand myself, with sending their loved ones away and going all these long terms, by themselves with their kids.
She added that the ladies all thought they were part of a documentary and that is how they managed to surprise them. It was a mega baby shower celebrating them, giving them support and love. Special celebrity cameos by Misty Copeland, De Marco Murray helped give out strollers and all the things away. It was very emotional.
The “Pop Up Santa Holiday Special” did have its premiere already, but you can watch it throughout the month on demand. You do not want to miss this tear-jerking episode, “Pop Up Santa,” visits the Brantley Family of Clarksville, Tennessee. They are about to experience some holiday magic.
