So I’m sitting here and thinking to myself that it would be fun to watch a nice Halloween oriented movie of some sort and thoughts immediately turn to Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas which I think is a wonderful film and I own on DVD when it hits me:
Is this really a Halloween movie or is it a Christmas movie?
Sure, most of the film is appropriately dark and spooky, but the message it holds seems more akin to the Christmas holiday than the Halloween one. I find myself in a bit of a quandary as I wonder if I should watch it now or wait till closer to Christmas. Or perhaps I should watch it half-way between the two holidays as a kind of compromise? Perhaps I should just skip it and see if the Charlie Brown special is due on tonight or tomorrow?
See, not everything I sit around contemplating is all that deep or important.
