    @Paulie_D Seems pretty much exactly the kind of question we want to see here (even if a little short). Of course answers should be properly reasoned with the movie itself, but that's to be taken care of in the answers. – Napoleon Wilson Apr 14 '17 at 15:13

My interpretation:

There are plenty of "explanations" but my opinion after watching The Nightmare Before Christmas was, that the beginning and the end of the movie tells the story;

Jack misses something even though he is the "king" of the town. The solution was not having something new, different or more. The solution was that he ignored Sally the whole time and she was the missing part of his life.

Also: it is not important what or when you celebrate, it is important with whom you celebrate and you don't ignore them the whole year! And remember them only in holidays.
