Although The Nightmare Before Christmas is more of a Halloween movie, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy the Tim Burton classic once October ends. In fact, a super spooky advent calendar inspired by the Disney movie just became available, allowing fans to spend December the Jack Skellington way.
Today Insight Editions (the creative team also behind the Friends: The Official Advent Calendar) released The Nightmare Before Christmas: Advent Calendar and Pop-Up Book. It is currently available wherever books are sold, as well as on Amazon for pre-order (to be shipped on October 11). Already it's a number one best seller on Amazon— a pretty impressive achievement considering it’s short time on the market.
Now you’re probably wondering: what makes this calendar so spectacular (or should I say spooktacular?). Well, for one thing, it’s super compact. At first glance, it looks like a book, but opens up to a game board-like spread complete with a pop-up Christmas tree and 25 tiny doors each filled with a unique spooky Christmas ornament. Come December, folks can open up a new door on the daily to reveal a frightfully fabulous ornament to hang on the pop-up tree. Ornaments include everything from a skeletal reindeer to a man-eating wreath. There’s also a golden star piece to place atop the tree modeled after the famous scene where Jack Skellington is walking on a cliff as the moon shines behind him.
The Nightmare Before Christmas: Advent Calendar and Pop-Up Book serves not only as a way to countdown to the big day, but also makes for a stunning visual display that can be used year after year. As a bonus, it includes a 28-page softcover guidebook filled with facts about Halloween Town and its residents.
