Once again we have cycled in to October, which means that it is Canadian thanksgiving, but also the more commonly known October holiday: Halloween. At this time of year, and at Christmas, one movie always resurfaces – Tim Burton’s: A Nightmare Before Christmas. This movie is perfect in its marketing, because it has the ability to resurface in two holidays a year.
In the movie, the citizens of Halloweentown are always counting down the days toward Halloween. The purpose of their entire life is devoted to this and they spent most of the year planning for this holiday. To aid them in their countdown, they have a clock that counts the days until Halloween arrives. This clock was recreated as a small model and is now being sold for the price of one hundred dollars. It’s a pretty sweet deal, especially if you are a year round Nightmare Before Christmas fan.
One of the reasons this clock is so expensive is because it is hand-painted making it a genuine piece of art. Unfortunately, it does not actually count down till the day of Halloween like the real clock does – in this clock’s world, there are always 59 days left. The clock will be correct once every year, but at least, it tells the time.
The clock looks great and includes many of the characters from the movie itself, not just Jack and Sally, who tend to be the main characters you find on Nightmare Before Christmas products. Despite the clock not actually counting down, it does have another function to it: lighting up. You could potentially use the clock as a night light. It runs on AA batteries, and is 8 inches tall and 7.5 inches wide.
This clock is perfect for people who are Goth-esque, Goth-wannabe’s, Emos, and – quite plainly – Nightmare Before Christmas fans. It is available for only $99.50.
