Family Film Night: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Every week we have a family film night, something Jared-David really looks forward too. This started when I was pregnant as we couldn't go out and about as much due to the issues I had. It was decided that each week we would get some snacks and pick a film.

This week we chose to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love Halloween and I love Christmas so it was a perfect choice. Jared-David has never seen this film last year I thought it would be too scary for him because lets face it a skeleton that basically steals Christmas isn't exactly joy to the world.


If you have never seen The Nightmare Before Christmas then I will give you the basics. There is a town called 'Halloween Town' Jack is the pumpkin king and one day off he goes and finds a load of tree's all with funny pictures carved/painted on them. Jack goes in to the tree with the tree on and discovers Christmas, he loves Christmas but thinks he could do it this year and let Father Christmas have a break. There is a lot of catchy songs in the film which Jared-David has been singing on repeat, well the first few lines then he mumbles.

Each week with our film we pick our snacks. Jared-David normally chooses something chocolatey this week he chose chocolate buttons, Liam had a selection of cheese and I had popcorn. The popcorn I had was chocolate marshmallow flavour. I'm normally a toffee kind of gal or sweet if we are in the cinema. I was a little bit unsure about it but WOW what a flavour! I loved it and I wasn't the only one handfuls were taken by both Liam and Jared-David. Good job I had a small bag of sweet as well.

I wonder what we will watch this weekend? Any recommendations?
