Okay, uandishi this is going to be wicked tough because there's probably a million reasons why I upendo Nightmare Before Christmas. But, I've narrowed it down to my (opinionated) reasons why I think Nightmare Before krisimasi is one of the best Disney sinema ever made x)
1. THE SOUNDTRACK: Who can go wrong with songs like This is Halloween, Jack's Lament, What's This, Kidnap the Sandy Claws, Town Meeting Song, Sally's Song, and Oogie Boogie's song?
2. THE CHARACTERS: With lovable Heroes (Jack and Sally) and impossible-to-hate villains (Lock, Shock, and Barrel), Nightmare Before krisimasi delivers the full package.
3. THE FEELZ: Oh, gosh, this movie plays with my emotions every time I watch it...Especially at the beginning, with an upbeat song like "This Is Halloween" transitioning into a slower, zaidi mellow song like "Jack's Lament".
4. THE ORIGINALITY: Disney has both some original and unoriginal ideas (come on, let's face it), but I can definitely call this a well-thought-out, brilliantly crafted masterpiece with nothing but originality down to the last scene.

[LOCK, SHOCK & BARREL]
Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws...

[LOCK]
I wanna do it!

[BARREL]
Let's draw straws!

[SHOCK]
Jack alisema we should work together
Three of a kind

[LOCK, SHOCK & BARREL]
Birds of a feather
Now and forever
Wheeee
La, la, la, la, la

Kidnap the Sandy Claws, lock him up real tight
Throw away the key and then
Turn off all the lights

[SHOCK]
First, we're going to set some bait
Inside a nasty trap and wait
When he comes a-sniffing we will
Snap the trap and close the gate

[LOCK]
Wait! I've got a better plan
To catch this big red lobster, kamba man
Let's pop him in a boiling pot
And when he's done we'll siagi him up

[LOCK, SHOCK & BARREL]
Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Throw him in a box
Bury him for ninety years
Then see if he talks

What's this? What's this?
There's color everywhere
What's this?
There's white things in the air
What's this?
I can't believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, Jack, this isn't fair
What's this?

What's this? What's this?
There's something very wrong
What's this?
There's people imba songs

What's this?
The streets are lined with
Little creatures laughing
Everybody seems so happy
Have I possibly gone daffy?
What is this?
What's this?

There are children throwing snowballs here
Instead of throwing heads
They're busy building toys
And absolutely no one's dead

There's frost on every window
Oh, I can't believe my eyes
And in my Bones I feel the warmth
That's coming from inside

Oh, look
What's this?
They're hanging mistletoe, they kiss
Why that looks so unique, inspired

What have I done?
What have I done?
How could I be so blind.
All is lost, where was I?
Spoiled all, Spoiled all.
Everything's gone wrong.

But I never intended all this madness, never
And nobody really understood, how could they?
That all I ever wanted was to bring them something great
Why does nothing ever turn out like it should?

Well, what the heck, I went and did my best
And, kwa God, I really tasted something swell
And for a moment, why, I even touched the sky
And at least I left some stories they can tell, I did

And for the first time since I don't remember when
I felt just like my old bony self again
And I, Jack, the pumpkin, boga King
That's right, I am the pumpkin, boga King, ha, ha, ha

And I just can't wait until inayofuata Halloween
'Cause I've got some new ideas
that will really make them scream
And, kwa God I'm really gonna give it all my might

Boys and girls of every age.
Won't wewe like to see something strange?
Come with us and wewe will see.
This, our town of Halloween.

This is Halloween, this is Halloween.
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night.
This is Halloween, everybody make a scene.
Trick au treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright.

I am the one hiding under wewe bed..
With teeth ground sharp with eyes glowing red.
I am the one hiding under your stairs with fingers like snakes and buibui in your hair.

In this town we call home.
Everyone hail to the pumpkin, boga song.

In this town don't we upendo it now.
Everybody's waiting for the inayofuata surprise.
Round' that corner man hiding in the trash can.
Something's waiting out to pounce and howl.you'll scream, this is Halloween.
Red and black and slimy green.

Aren't wewe scared now that's just fine.
Say it once say it twice take the chance and roll the dice ride with the moon and dead of night.

There are few who'd deny, at what I do I am the best
For my talents are renowned far and wide
When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night
I excel without ever even trying
With the slightest little effort of my ghostlike charms
I have seen grown men give out a shriek
With the wave of my hand, and a well-placed moan
I have swept the very bravest off their feet

Yet mwaka after year, it's the same routine
And I grow so weary of the sound of screams
And I, Jack, the pumpkin, boga King
Have grown so tired of the same old thing

Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones
An emptiness began to grow
There's something out there, far from my home
A longing that I've never known

I'm a master of fright, and a demon of light
And I'll scare wewe right out of your pants
To a guy in Kentucky, I'm Mister Unlucky
And I'm known throughout England and France

I sense there's something in the wind.
That feels like tragedy's at hand.
And though I'd like to stand kwa 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?
Although I'd like to jiunge the crowd
In their enthusiastic cloud
Try as may, it doesn't last.

And will we end up together
oh.....
And will we end up together
No, I think its not to ever become
For I am not the one

It was midnight in Halloweentown. Everyone slept peacefully, whether in a kitanda au upside down. But, three little misfts were wide awake, uandishi and fighting for details. It was Boogie's boys: Lock, who's now barely 18, Shock, being 17, and Barrel, with 16 years in his side. There they were, reunited once zaidi in their devious mission to ruin the pumpkin, boga king's life and of those around his black and machungwa, chungwa crown. Lock planned the first part of the plan: eliminate his loved ones one kwa one. Shock planned the sekunde part: rid him of his crown and bansh him from the town. Barrel planned the third and most cruel part (for the mashabiki and family, of course): eliminate the King once and for all, including his only legacy: a smart skeleton girl called Samantha Skellington. Though Lock and Shock had enough enthusiasm and wit to fullfill such nightmare, Barrel didn't find the logic of this plan. His moyo had changed after visiting MCU. MCU is the Mixed Creatures University, one of the youngest to go was him. Here all kinds of mixed creatures learn to use their power and control their roots. Barrel is part monster (please, ignore the logic), where, in MCU, turn into men and women of good,...

-------------One Đαяж siku in the Middle of the Night--------------
-------------Chapter II-------------


    All that was happening to poor вєп was being watched in a giant room, kwa a pair of thin, small eyes. They were enjoying the onyesha terribly.
    “Well, that’s some boy wewe have there. Yes, some boy indeed,” a shrill, high pitched voice echoed throughout the den.“Some boy..,” it repeated while a fiery red lobster, kamba claw lowered some thin black shades from his pointed nose. “I’m very happy I have him now. He’s just what I wanted. Oh don’t wewe worry your pretty little head about it. I’ll take good care of him. Real good care,” he continued with a tender lick of his lips kwa an easily recognizable forked tongue. “He’ll be happy here, with me. I’ll train him, and treat him like my own.” his pointed feet danced over to a sort of bed. It was simple stone, with one of its faces covered kwa three au four inch long spikes, some of which where bent like hooks. It moved like one of those giant chalkboards, rotating...

(A few years have passed since that skeleton unsewed Oogie Boogie. The troublesome trio has grown into zaidi mature people (except for Lock) and are studying in different schools. It is summer, and the trio is reunited once again. Yesterday, Lock was walking his pet buibui he earned at Devil and Demons Camp when he sees two people kissing each other high up a hill. This is what happened the inayofuata day...)

Barrel: Achoo!
Lock: Man what a sneeze? Are wewe sick?
B: No, I'm just giving my opinion through my nose, of course I'm sick, Lock!
L: Shock has a cold.
B:<<Sniff>> So?
L:I saw wewe two kiss yesterday and...
B: I didn't kiss my sister
L: Are wewe sure, because you're the only one that wears two different shoes when doing sports and wewe played mpira wa wavu with Shock and another girl yesterday.
B: It still wasn't me, maybe it was Kevin.
L: I don't think Keving has the intelligence to kiss a girl, though he is a smart zombie. Did wewe actually kiss her on the lips?

Halloween Town is a dream world filled with citizens such as deformed monsters, ghosts, ghouls, goblins,vampires, mtu-bweha and witches. Jack Skellington ("The pumpkin, boga King") leads them in a frightful celebration every Halloween, but he has grown tired of the same routine mwaka after year. Wandering in the forest outside the town center with his ghost dog, Zero, he accidentally opens a portal to "Christmas Town", Which was supposed to be the North Pole. Impressed kwa the feeling and style of Christmas, Jack presents his findings and his (somewhat limited) understanding of the holiday to the Halloween Town some-what understanding residents. They fail to grasp his meaning and compare everything he says to their idea of Halloween. He reluctantly decides to play along and announces that they will take over Christmas.
Jack's obsession with krisimasi leads him to usurp the role of Santa Claus. Every resident is assigned a task, while Sally, a rag doll woman who is created kwa the town's mad scientist, begins to feel a romantic attraction towards Jack. However, when she is alone, she has a premonition of Jack's krisimasi ending in disaster. Jack assigns Lock, Shock and Barrel, a trio...

thiz story isnt mine so i cant take the credit so here. It was cold in the lab as Dr. Finklestein studied his current specimen. A snail, injected with just a hint of zombie blood. Previously a dark brown colour the creature had turned bright blue all over, soon crawling around its jar at a speed unlike that expected for such a slow creature. "Very interesting," the scientist muttered, recording his observations in a black journal.
"Master," came a voice from behind him. "Master, there is a visitor here to see you."
He turned his wheelchair around to see Igor, his hunchbacked assistant. The dimwitted creature wasn't exactly Dr. Finklestein's greatest creation to date, being little zaidi then a general nusiance. But he served his purpose around here, which was basically to do whatever he was told to. Make supper, fetch plans, do little meaningless tasks...anything to keep him out of the way.
"Who is it, Igor?" he sighed now, not happy to put off his experiments. "If it's another salesman, tell him to go away."

Jack had been searching siku and night for that outfit since it was a week tell halloween. "I saw it with Maria." He went to the play room where she was watching a horor movie although she was 11. She was studying the outfit to make herself an outfit for Halloween since she only had the special one sally made out of the fabric that made Jack's regular outfit. She was just about finished making the outfit when jack came in.

Dark skies. The darkest.    
     Choking blood.
Wet eyes, those were my dad’s.    
     That’s the last thing I
            remember...

    вєп’s eyes slowly opened. They didn’t look around, they didn’t even adjust to the dim light. He could barely see out of one anyway. It’s all he could do to songesha it. So he didn’t.
    He just lay there. His body was in agonizing pain, but it began to subside. The blood gushing from his side and arm began to dry. He pushed his head against the cold hard ground and let out several terrible coughs, choking on his blood.
    He continued to lay there. On his back, afterlife going on all around him. A monstrous foot stepped on his small chest. But he hardly flinched as it kept walking, not noticing him....

Thank for kusoma this far, to those of wewe who read this--PS the pictures are just bila mpangilio now cuz I just remembered how to put them on!!

Danny poked me to wake me up.
“Are wewe still alive?” he said, “Cuz I wouldn’t be surprised if wewe weren’t.”
“Technically I’m not,” I told him.
“Am I? Living skeletons aren’t zombies but they aren’t alive—wait, but zombies are living dead—are skeletons dead?”
We smiled. Then I remembered.
“No!” I cried, bounding out the room. Tape followed after me and made it in the kanzu, koti closet before I slammed it shut. I heard Zero’s barking upstairs.
“Gretchen?” dad said. It sounded like he came from the back porch.
I alisema nothing. I can’t believe it, though—I was so excited about nailing the audition I forgot that today is…
“The twins must be up,” mom alisema to the boys.
“Is she in the closet?” the triplets asked.
Danny answered, “Yeah.”
“Boys,” I heard dad scold them for snickering uncontrollably.

Zeeb, at least, tried to help me out. “You should consider keeping her home. She likes it here a lot zaidi than school.”

“Those shoes are gruesome.”
    “I know!”
    “…”
    “What are wewe thinking about? I asked.
    Danny sat down on a foot stool. “Does anyone even know why we’re not allowed in the forest?”
    “I’ve been told multiple times it’s ‘dangerous’.”
    “Who told wewe that?”
    “Everyone. Dr. F especially. He got really mad at me for asking him. Harly, Helgamine, Zeldaborne, Jimmy, they all think I’m crazy.”
    “I remember the talk with Jimmy, but where was I with everyone else?”
    “I dunno, badminton practice?”
    “Probably.”
    “Anyhow, whenever I ask anyone what other holidays are called, they back away, au snap at me au something. They know I know where it is.”
“The path to it’s right inayofuata to the mountain!” Danny said.

Hello again--here's another part xD hope wewe like it as much as the first part!

I have to say I’m the happiest when chaos strikes. The following events crack me up--when stuff like this happens my brothers get extremely worried and extremely excited at the same time, leavcing them on the verge of laughter, but on the verge of anger all at once. Priceless.

Danny, hanging for dear life, and Jeremy climbing on him, fell after “the pop heard round the world” (I totally just made that up :).

Poor Jeremy (although he had it coming) fell hard on his back, but Zeeb caught Danny pretty easily. Calvin checked Jeremy’s head for cracks just in case and Zeeb started for the spiral staircase with Danny and his lifelessly dangling leg. Q took me kwa the arm and ran to inform the parents.
Q was laughing so hard he almost choked. “That was hilarious!”
“He had it coming,” I replied.
Then he said, “That sick dude, climbing him!”
“He totally had it coming,” I repeated.

hujambo guys xD I've always thought of what would happen if Jack and Sally had offspring, so here is my version if wewe like that kind of stuff!

Enjoy--

“Look, kids! It’s snowing!”

Dad always gets excited when the first few snowflakes fall from the sky. My brothers always hurry to the window. Mom is always the calmest and took her time while taking one last look at the close-to-boiling cabbage kitoweo, mchuzi before joining the family to gaze at the dark krisimasi night.

I, on the other hand have not always watched them from the start of the stairway, but I was zaidi often, tapping away at the start of the stair case.

Right now would be the perfect opportunity to leave without them noticing---but then Danny heard my slipper meet the first step.
“Come on, Gretch, soup’s on.”
I turned my head slightly just to say, “Not for ten zaidi minutes, Dan. I’ll be right back, okay?”
He joked around, like all brothers do. “Don’t leave me!” he smiled, thinking he was funny, but he was just giving me zaidi attention.
