Eddy knew he should be in bed. He was exhausted. Over the past who-knows-how-many weeks, he had discovered a whole different world behind a door in the woods, teamed up with a skeleton to run Christmas, found out that he and the skeleton both missed his big brother, got shot out of the sky, and saved Double D and Ed from a horrible, flaming death. And it wasnt easy sneaking back into his house either!
But he knew he had to do this. If he didnt do it now, he was sure to forget it.
So Eddy did something that he hadnt done in a long time: he took out a piece of paper and a pencil, and began to write.
Well, it took a while, but I finally found that old map of yours in that secret compartment in the attic. As long as you have secrets in this house, Im going to sniff them out. Nothing is safe.
Anyway, I dont know if you wrote that poem or not, but it was completely true. I found out where holidays come from, and it was awesome. I can see why you lef

Another news report was flooding through Peach Creek, but it was definitely different from the one before.
Good news, folks. Santa Claus, the one and only, has finally been spotted. Old Saint Nick appears to be traveling at supersonic speed. He's setting things right, bringing joy and cheer wherever he goes. Yes folks, Kris Kringle has pulled it out of the bag and delivered Christmas to excited children all over the world!
In Halloween Town, the citizens were just waking up. And they had a big surprise waiting for them. The Mayor drove into town in his car, Sally sitting next to him. Jack was riding on the front of the car, Zero flying next to it. The Stouthearted Eds were sitting on the top of the car with Lock, Shock, and Barrel.
Its very safe to say that the townspeople were pleased by this.
Chorus: La, la, la, (etc.)
Jack's okay, and he's back, okay

Things were not looking well for Sally, Santa, Double D, and Ed.
Oogie had bound all four of them, and was about to finish them off. The four of them had been placed on rising panels that were part of Oogies giant roulette wheel, Sally and Santa on one, Double D and Ed on the other. Below them was a cauldron filled with hot lava, with a machine that looked like a cross between a spider and an eight ball was mixing it. If the panels were at just the right angle, it would send all four of them straight into the lava! And that just happened to be what Oogie was planning.
Double D was concentrating on straining his body hard enough to free himself from his restraints. Ed, of course, was the only one who didnt seem afraid. Instead, he had a disappointed look on his face again.
Double D, you guys werent supposed to get caught, Ed said, turning to his friend.
Double D shot a nasty look at Ed, then went right back to straining.
You wait until Jack hears abou

Eddy couldnt see. No, it wasnt like he was blind, or anything like that. He knew he was still alive, and he could see. It was just that every time he tried to open his eyes, everything spun. And he couldnt stop it. So he just sat there with his eyes closed, rubbing his head.
Stop it, stop it! he yelled in his head. Stop spinning! Finally, after what seemed like forever, he could finally see clearly. As he looked around, he realized that he was sitting in Peach Creek Cemetery. He was sitting in the snow against a giant tomb with a statue of an angel on top of it. But that wasnt what Eddy was freaking out about.
All around, Eddy could see the charcoal remains of the presents he and Jack had yet to deliver, and a few feet away was the remains of the coffin sleigh, still ablaze. But what scared Eddy the most was the thing lying right next to him. It was the Santa hat Jack had been wearing.
Eddy carefully reached over and picked

Sally had led Double D right to the tree house near the woods. And Double D could tell just by looking at it that it wasnt going to be easy rescuing Ed and Santa.
Just as I thought, Sally whispered, peering into one of the windows. Sandy Claws was taken to Oogies place.
Oogie? asked Double D, gulping. Whos that?
The meanest character in all of Halloween Town, said Sally.
I was afraid of that, said Double D.
And it looks like he has your friend, too, added Sally.
Double D cautiously peeked in. Sure enough, Ed was dangling in the air by his eyebrow next to Santa. And of course, Ed had a smile on his face. Typical . . . thought Double D. So, whats the plan Sally? he asked his comrade.
It goes like this . . . Sally answered.
Later, inside Oogies lair, Oogie picked up a pair of dice. Are you a gambling man, Sandy? he a

Jack Skellington was riding through the fog in his coffin sleigh. Luckily, Zeros nose was very bright, so he didnt have that much difficulty seeing. When the fog finally cleared, Jack was thrilled to see his destination. The human world!
Meanwhile, inside the present sack, Eddy was sifting through the presents in the dark. He kept having to remind himself to be quiet about it because Jack was right there. As he looked for his present in vain, Eddy began to wonder why he hadnt done this earlier.
Suddenly, the sleigh hit solid ground with a THUMP, causing Eddy to bounce up and hit his head on the lid of the trunk.
Ow! he said, then quickly clamped his hands over his mouth. Had Jack heard him?
Jack stepped out of the sleigh and reached into the trunk to grab his sack. As he flung it over his shoulder, he noticed that it seemed heavier now than it had been in Halloween Town.
Maybe I made more presents than I thought . . . Jack said to himself as h

A crowd had gathered at the center of Halloween Town, but for a different reason this time. They were all waiting for Jack to emerge from the coffin sleigh he would be driving.
Of course, Double D was still very nervous about the whole thing. Then he saw Sally make her way through the crowd over to the fountain. He quickly ran over to her, just in time to see Sally pouring something into the fountain water.
Sally, whats that? he asked.
Fog Juice, she answered.
Fog Juice? Double D repeated. What does it . . .
Just then, a very thick fog began to pour out of the fountain. And at the same time, Jack emerged from the coffin. The crowd cheered. Double D and Sally walked over to where Eddy was standing.
The Mayor began to read a speech for Jack. Think of us as you soar triumphantly through the sky, outshining every star, he read. You who are our pride, you who are our glory. You who have frightened billions to an early

Back in Halloween Town, everything was almost ready. Eddy and Double D were watching Sally put the finishing touches on Jacks Sandy Claws outfit. As they watched, Eddy and Double D agreed on one thing: Jack didnt look a thing like Santa Claus.
You dont look like yourself, Jack, said Sally, in a last attempt to change her friends mind. Not at all.
Isnt it wonderful? Jack asked as Sally sewed. It couldnt be more wonderful!
But youre the Pumpkin King, protested Sally, holding up an old picture of Jack.
Not anymore, said Jack, taking the picture and snapping it in half on his knee. And I feel so much better.
Sally, Double D, and Eddy were shocked at what Jack had just done.
I hadnt counted on that one, Eddy said to Double D. Double D nodded in agreement.
Jack, I know you think somethings missing, Sally said as s
