The Nightmare Before Christmas


In magical Halloween town, Halloween is made and managed. As can be imagined, Halloweentown is a dark and spooky place. The most famous resident is Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King.

One day, when wandering through the woods with Zero, his ghoul dog, he finds a Christmas-tree shaped door. Jack goes through the door, and is amazed to find Christmas town. It's a truly wonderful place, with bright fairy lights, snow and tinsel. Jack returns to Halloweentown and makes a brilliant suggestion to the townsfolk - it would be a great idea if Halloweentown took over Christmas.
