The Nightmare Before Christmas: Holiday Cards/Holiday Invitations

There really are nightmares and sweet dreams too. The sweet dreams, ‘dulce sueno’ are the ones that come when we’re carefree like a little girl who dreams of candy and jewels and colors where as an adult may have a nightmare portraying their anxiety. “The Nightmare Before Christmas” examines in a colorful animated children’s story with claymation from Tim Burton a character by the name of “Jack”. Jack’s obsession comes from his inability to be part of the festivities of Christmas town. Jack’s the king of Halloween town, but is obsessed with the spirit of Christmas. Thus, he plans to kidnap Santa Claus so that he can replace him by bring joy to the children on Christmas morning. However, he forgets who he is, he brings fright and fulfillment to the trick or treaters so he transfers these frightful gift ideas and the result is a horrific failure because the children are expecting their dolls and toys instead they receive headless dolls or snakes instead of stuffed animals. Jack sees this disaster and is horrified. Jack finally realizes he belongs to Halloween town with Sally, his longtime friend who is worried about him. He decides to leave Christmas town to Santa.

Lali also included a toasting glass where Jack saluting to Donna (Sally’s character). The invitation is printed in red thermography on cream paper, the rsvp is on red stock with silver thermography. All the stationery are tied together with a red ribbon. The invitation envelope is in a matching red stock with The Nightmare Before Christmas art work added as an extra detail.

Sally’s Song/The Nightmare Before Christmas

In this video clip from The Nightmare before Christmas Sally expresses her anxiety about her friend Jack. Here is the Video for Sally’s Song/The Nightmare Before Christmas:

Here are the Lyrics to Sally’s Song/The Nightmare Before Christmas:

I sense there’s something in the wind, That feels like tragedy’s at hand. And though I’d like to stand by him, Can’t shake this feeling that I have. The worst is just around the bend, And does he notice my feelings for him. And will he see, how much he means to me? I think it’s not to be. What will become of my dear friend, Where will his actions lead us then?… And will we ever end up together?

Luckily, by the end of the story Jack realizes his obsession is misguided therefore returns Santa’s Hat and comes back to his home and to Sally in Halloweentown. Happy, Spooky Holidays, Halloween & Sweet Dreams
