It's an age-old question among Tim Burton fans everywhere: Is The Nightmare Before Christmas a movie for Halloween or for Christmas?
My answer is that it's neither — the creepy yet heartwarming classic is meant for any season or holiday. Just because it's the start of the school year, and Halloween and Christmas are both months away doesn't mean Jack Skellington fans can't scoop up some adorable gear.
Gothic fans everywhere have purchased merch based on the stop-motion film — from lipstick lines to jewelry. Now dinner parties everywhere will have a little more Halloween-Christmas vibes thanks to Target's recently launched kitchen supplies based around the movie.
