My wife and I were watching the Hallmark Channel's "Countdown to Christmas" over the weekend and were surprised when Fort Collins was featured in one of the movies. In the movie, "Road to Christmas", they visited the fictitious Gateway Pines Christmas Tree Farm in Fort Collins, which they called the "3rd Largest family-owned Christmas tree farm in the U.S". The tree farm, of course, does not exist.

A TV producer is producing a Christmas Special for the 5th year but she is then told to co-produce it with the host's son. Initially, she's not too happy about it but - Christmas brings friends and families together.

It's cool that they mentioned Fort Collins, even if they didn't really visit the city.This YouTube video takes you behind the scenes of the movie:
