This Home Depot Has A Strangely Beautiful “Nightmare Before Christmas”

Reader Brendan was visiting his local Home Depot when he saw something strange and beautiful outside. There was an ominously-lit display of pumpkins and other fall cheer, and then a beautifully lit selection of Christmas trees behind it. Is the store trying to celebrate multiple holidays at once, or is this more of a Nightmare Before Christmas holiday mashup?

It’s pretty, isn’t it?


“Home Depot can’t make up its mind! Halloween gear I totally get, but Christmas?” Brendan wrote. “The worker inside said it came in a week ago, too!”

Here’s a view of the entire store.


Me, I’m just going to hit the “publish” button and whistle this song again.
