Halloween is my favorite holiday and for a long time Nightmare Before Christmas was my favorite movie. But now, I am pretty sure that this will be my new favorite! I would love to see this movie a second time. As a matter of fact, I told my husband that. So maybe when he gets back we will all go together as a family and watch it! It is definitely worth watching again in my opinion!
