Aloha Friday: My Favorite Non-Conventional Holiday Movie
This time of year, Christmas just seems to take over. Christmas decorations go up in every store. Christmas music blares 24/7 from the radio stations. Television stations trot out the Christmas specials and movies.
Since we celebrate Chanukah, and not Christmas, this XMas overdrive can get tiring quickly. We tend to avoid the stores (admittedly, partly because of the crowds), turn off the radios, and change the channel from the Christmas specials. Once in awhile, we’ll find a Chanukah special, but they are few and far between.
However, in all of this Christmas hoopla, there is actually a Christmas movie that I love: The Nightmare Before Christmas. I just love the tale of Jack Skellington kidnaping Santa Claus (or “Sandy Claws” as Jack calls him) so he can make Christmas in his own image.
Recently, I introduced the boys to this movie. I was apprehensive at first, worrying that they would be scared of Halloween Town’s spooky residents. Instead, my boys were instantly hooked. Since then, we’ve all been singing “The Oogy Boogy Song” as well as the other tunes sung during the movie. I think I’m going to have to buy the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack so we can rock out to it more.
My Aloha Friday question for today is: Do you have a favorite non-conventional holiday movie/special?
