Treasury Tuesday: Nightmare Before Christmas

My little tabletop Nightmare Before Christmas tree

My little tabletop Nightmare Before Christmas tree

Welcome to another Treasury Tuesday. This week is all about one my my favoritest movies: The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Why did I want to feature The Nightmare Before Christmas? Because it’s awesome, and I’m decorating my house in all kinds of Nightmare goodies, including my appropriately themed Christmas tree in my bedroom (pictured), so I just have Jack and Sally on the brain I guess!

To be honest, I wasn’t all that into the movie when I was a kid. We had it on VHS and I enjoyed it, but I didn’t really appreciate it until I became an adult. I just love the art style, and the simple story much like a 1950’s Holiday special with a Gothic twist. And as a parent it’s always nice to have a Christmas movie to enjoy with your child without wanting to puke your brains out (I’m looking at you, Santa Paws).

So enjoy the selection, cross some names off your shopping list, and send some love to these wonderful sellers.

See you next week!
