Only 8 DAYS until Christmas!!!

Yes, we included The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) in the Halloween countdown as well, but that is one of the aspects of the film that makes it so magical: it’s both!  The stop-motion animated film by Tim Burton is about Jack Skellington, the king of Halloween, who discovers Christmas Town and then must learn what Christmas is all about.  The colorful characters, fabulous songs by Danny Elfman, and mix of the macabre of Halloween with Christmas joy makes for a cinematic experience that continues to reach new generations.

It is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time (as are most of Burton’s works).  I’ve loved it since it came out when I was three years old, and I love it still today.  Only Burton would think to mix Halloween and Christmas, but I’m SO glad he did!

About bpaige08

I am one of those infamous 20 somethings, fresh out from under the college umbrella. I have always had a deep love for all things pop culture: movies, television, music, books, and (although I cringe to admit it to the nameless mass reading this) celebrity. Acting is my dream, although I currently need to pay off Uncle Sam before I can pursue my lifelong ambition. But that hasn't stopped my passion. I am also passionate about food, animals, and the environment. No, I am not a vegan. No, I do not want to be one. I like eggs. And cheese. They rock. I am TOTALLY open for suggestions, comments, and complaints. Feel free to harass me for my writing style or tell me how much you agree with me.
