    I would say both. But I personally think it feels more Halloween. I have an Oogie Boogie I made that I bring out at Halloween, and I’ve carved the pumpkins to look like Jack. But i dont bring out any Nightmare Before Christmas decorations for Christmas…. So I definitely lean towards Halloween.

    Btw, just last night I played a Halloween themed station on Pandora Radio and a song from Nightmare Before Christmas was in the rotation. The song was This is Halloween by Marilyn Manson.

    I equate it more to Halloween but I watch it October and November

    Honestly, it’s both! At Disneyland one of the things they do for the holiday season is starting in Septmeber they re-theme The Haunted Mansion into The Nightmare Before Christmas themed and keep it like that unitl January. It’s brilliant because they can just keep the decor up through Halloween and Christmas!

    For me though, I can see it falling more as a Christmas movie, since the actual holiday of Halloween plays a very small role in the film.

    Its both and I read somewhere a while back that the director confirmed this. I guess it could be either or to someone..

    I’ve always considered it both, but if I had to pick, I’d lean toward Christmas, I think.

    I think it is definitely a Christmas movie. 

    Last year I saw Jack doing meet and greets dressed as Santa near Phantom Manor (DLRP’s version of the Haunted Mansion) at Disneyland Paris during the Christmas Holidays.
