About Nightmare Before Christmas

Boys and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange? So sing the ghosts and ghouls in the opening sequence of Tim Burton's gothic fantasy animation film "The Nightmare Before Christmas," also known as "NBX." However, strange does not even come close to defining the comically ghoulish creations that inhabit Halloween Town in this story, which chronicles the Pumpkin King's attempt to steal the Christmas holiday and keep it for his own. Released in 1993 and based on a poem by Burton, this classic fantasy story has spawned a huge franchise, and now fans can buy "Nightmare Before Christmas" ornaments, hoodies, snow globes, purses, toys, games, and much more. Of course, there are also plenty of "NBX" Christmas decorations. One of the most delightful is the intricate "Nightmare Before Christmas" village with light-up windows and miniature figurines. It makes a stunning showpiece for an avid fan. All "Nightmare Before Christmas" merchandise is available from reliable sellers on eBay in new and used condition, so you should not have any problem finding "something strange."
