Information:

Lights showing the three trick or treaters from the film the Nightmare Before Christmas. The film plays on the idea of holidays being places and the place that Halloween comes from is Halloween Town. Halloween just wouldn't be Halloween without trick or treaters and these characters are called Lock, Stock and Barrel. One is dressed as a witch, one as a Devil and one as a skeleton (three classic trick or treat costumes). In the film, they work for the evil Mr Oogie Boogie Man. They capture Santa Claus and torment him. Many people now associate Halloween with its portrayal in the film the Nightmare before Christmas.
