Nightmare before Christmas is the perfect movie. It goes from Halloween and leads right into Christmas! (Not to worry, I’m not skipping Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving!)
“The monsters are all missing
And the nightmares can’t be found
And in their place there seems to be
Good feeling all around
Instead of screams, I swear
I can hear music in the air
The smell of cakes and pies
Are absolutely everywhere . . .”
-‘What’s this?’ from the Nightmare Before Christmas
(Pretty much every Halloween, I take time to watch the Nightmare Before Christmas, not only is it clever, cute, pretty much a cult film, and lots of fun, but it bridges the gap between Halloween and Christmas making it a perfect movie for October 31.)
“This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Tender lumplings everywhere
Life’s no fun without a good scare
That’s our job, but we’re not mean
In our town of Halloween.”
-Nightmare Before Christmas
Happy Halloween everybody! I love this holiday because it’s not only fun to dress up and be silly well after dark, but it’s the gateway holiday to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Halloween is the start of the holiday season! Yay! I hope you have lots of fun tonight!
“I simply taught, preached, wrote God’s Word; otherwise I did nothing. And then, while I slept…the Word so greatly weakened the papacy that never a prince or emperor did such damage to it. I did nothing. The Word did it all.” – Martin Luther
It’s the first day of fall, and thus it’s my favorite time of the year! Now for leaves and crisp mornings! Now for long dark nights, sweaters, hot chocolate, fires, and leaves, leaves, leaves. Soon the chill will increase and the coats will come out. Soon the days will be short and sweet and Christmas will loom on the horizon. But now pumpkins will turn the world orange and one scary night will herald in the holiday season. Soon we will have a day of Thanks and over eating. Happy First Day of Fall!
(Yes. I know it’s still hot down here in Texas, but a girl can dream, right?)
