What is the Nightmare Before Christmas about?
It’s the classic tale of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town and his mission to turn his home and the residents more jolly after stumbling upon Christmas Town. Jack decides that Halloween town will be taking over the responsibility of Christmas this year and gives everyone yule-tide jobs including singing carols, making presents, and building a sleigh to be pulled by skeletal reindeer. Meanwhile, the Pumpkin King gives the important task of abducting Santa Claus to the mischevious trio Lock, Shock and Barrel. Jack urges the trio to keep Santa safe and just to bring him back to his tower. However, the plan goes awry when the children deliver Santa to a gambling-addicted bogeyman named Oogie Boogie. Jack, along with his love interest Sally and the rest of the town must figure out a way to save Santa and Chrismas before its too late.
