For Jack, and to a lesser extent for the rest of the Town, the play has faded from Halloween. His Christmas quest unites, transforms, and expands his people, while at the same time revealing them—the Doctor develops flying reindeer, the band plays new tunes, the vampires learn to ice skate. The Christmas experiment allows Halloween Town to experience the transgressive joy of the holiday the town is supposed to promote: that of donning masks, applying paint, assuming a different form—and yet remaining yourself.
The entire community plays Halloween together, wearing the mask of Christmas. In attempting to lose themselves, they find themselves again.
