Tim Burton’s ‘A Nightmare Before Christmas’ is one of the most beloved holiday movies of all time. It has interesting characters, excellent stop-motion techniques, a dynamite soundtrack, and a plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat. An ongoing debate among fans is whether it is a Christmas or Halloween film. I attempt to settle the debate by examining both sides, the points in their favor, and the movie itself.
