       I know.  It sounds crazy.  But I have a favorite nightmare.  Not in the way you’re thinking though…I’m talking about my favorite movie A Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton.   Why is this my favorite movie you ask? Well I’d love to tell you!
       My oldest son, who was 5 or 6 at the time asked to rent this movie from our local blockbuster.  I looked at the cover and was a little apprehensive but I gave it a go anyway.  It turned out to be his favorite movie EVER and mine as well.  It’s now become a yearly tradition to watch the movie on Halloween and Christmas! The cinematography was so eye-catching and the storyline absolutely genius that I was hooked. I can’t leave out the fact that my all-time favorite musician Fiona Apple performed Sally’s Song! Everyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE Fioana Apple…totally devoted fan right here!! *clears throat* back to the movie.   This movie became an instant family favorite for us because of its ability to translate between both Halloween and Christmas.   It’s a perfect blend of both!  Only Tim Burton can produce a dark and creepy musical and make it family friendly…am I right?! Totally!!  From the frankenstien-ish type characters to the dark, creepy feel of the land…it screams Halloween.   And the cleverness of making each holiday its own little land/town/portal…absolutely genius!!

     Anyway, this is movie is my favorite nightmare because little did I know on that fateful day, renting this movie would somehow turn into a family tradition.   We seriously watch it throughout the holiday season, and I think we especially enjoy it after we’ve stuffed ourselves to the brim on Thanksgiving.   We watch it after we’ve returned from trick-or-treating, or on a lazy Sunday afternoon while escaping rainy days.   So there’s my nightmare for ya…not so scary after all was it?? :D

Happy Halloween! 

Thank you so much Nette!
