"Making Christmas" is a song featured in the 1993 Christmas/Halloween movie film, The Nightmare Before Christmas. During which Jack Skellington and the residents of Halloween Town prepare all the gifts and decorations for Christmas, while Santa Claus and his elves continue with their preparations unknowing of Jack's plan to do Christmas that year.
Additionally, the part where Behemoth would sing was originally storyboarded in early development. However, this sequence was trimmed down in the final version, making the song a little short in order to save time for production.
