By |2019-10-31T06:16:57-06:00October 31st, 2019|

"The Nightmare Before Christmas" came out 26 years ago . . . and fans have spent the past 26 years arguing over whether it's a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie.  (#FirstWorldProblems) But the debate is now OVER.  Or not.

In the past, the director Henry Selick has said that it's a Halloween movie because it's mainly about characters from Halloween. That said, a lot of fans consider it just as much a Christmas movie as a Halloween one . . [...]

Another reason is we enjoy being different like we're nonconformists.  Or we just have fond memories of people who gave out full-size candy when WE were kids.  So it gives us a [...]
