“È stato molto tempo fa, più di quanto ora sembra,
in un posto che forse nei sogni si rimembra,
la storia che voi udire potrete,
si svolse nel mondo delle feste più liete.
Vi sarete chiesti, magari, dove nascono le feste.
Se così non è, direi… che cominciare dovreste!
Dal film “Nightmare Before Christmas”
