Secondly, I loved [that] there was a real sisterhood we developed on that movie with Emma, myself and Jessica Capshaw,” Chenoweth, 52, told Us Weekly exclusively on November 11 while promoting Kelloggs’ Do it Yuleself campaign. “Cap’s probably one of my best friends.” The Wicked actress also gushed about costars Francis Fisher and Cynthy Wu, adding, “We just had a really tight-knit, female-powered group, and I’m really proud of that.” In Holidate, Chenoweth stars as Roberts’ character’s aunt. The holiday-themed rom-com, which hit Netflix on October 28, follows Sloane (Roberts) as she forges a platonic agreement with a man named Jackson (Luke Bracey) to be each other’s plus-ones to holiday gatherings. Over time, the pair start to develop real feelings for each other. Tis the Season!

In her household, there are certain traditions that her family has tried to uphold over the years. “My mom was big into ceramics when I was growing up. She made this beautiful Christmas ceramic tree, and on each point is a candle. … We would light a candle and say what we were most thankful for,” she explained to Us. “That tradition kind of got a little lost as I became an adult and began to work all the time. Though I don’t have a ceramic Christmas tree — it’s probably in my parents’ attic — because we know I’m on the go, they come to me a lot. When I’m done working this year, I will get to come home to Oklahoma and be with them for the first time in a long time.” The Glee alum said that she’s continued to practice her family’s candle-lighting tradition wherever she is that time of the year. “It might not be the ceramic Christmas tree, but candles and lighting with whoever I’m with,” she added. “Whether it’s a cast of people in a concert tour with me, it doesn’t matter. I take the time. We light a candle, and we say what we’re grateful for. I think this year it will be probably the most important one yet.” Totally Festive!
