I can’t say if this movie stands up to the passage of time. I don’t know if it can speak to children today as it once so lovingly spoke to me. I do know that there are 3 Christmas movies that consistently bring a smile to my face simply by the fond memories of family and love that company them. This movie is definitely one for me. Bonus feature: In spite of the Rudolf reference, it is not much of a commercial film, a rare commodity even for the time.

What’s This? from The Nightmare Before Christmas Is it a Halloween movie or is it a Christmas movie? There are strong arguments to be made for each by the film itself. However, I proposed that the question is a trick. It is neither. It is a Tim Burton movie, through and through and one that can be enjoyed no matter the season. This song in particular never fails to remind me of the wonder I should see in the every day. Every tiny thing I take for granted in my daily life is completely exotic to someone somewhere.
