29 days until Halloween!

We are excited, truly excited. The kettle is dancing with the best tea on the planet. And we are drinking away, enjoying the moment. In 29 days, we’ll go trick-or-treating and we’ll have the best time of our lives!

Today, our chosen film is Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, and we love the opening song, “This is Halloween”. We’re sharing the video here so that you can sing and dance with us.

Lyrics:

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn’t you like to see something strange?
Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night
This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat until the neighbours going to die of fright
It’s our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red
I am the one hiding under your stairs
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween

In this town, we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song
In this town, don’t we love it now?
Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise

Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can

Something’s waiting now to pounce and how you’ll scream
This is Halloween, red and black, slimy green
Aren’t you scared? Well, that’s just fine

Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night
Everybody scream, everybody scream
In our town of Halloween

I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace
I am the who when you call, who’s there?
I am the wind blowing through your hair
I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween
Halloween, Halloween

Tender lumplings everywhere
Life’s no fun without a good scare
That’s our job, but we’re not mean
In our town of Halloween

In this town, don’t we love it now?
Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise

Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
And scream like a banshee
Make you jump out of your skin
This is Halloween, everybody scream
Won’t you please make way for a very special guy?

Our man Jack is king of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King, now

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween

In this town, we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
