* Jack's song after he's been shot down and landed in the graveyard... until he decides to fix things and not mope around feeling sorry for himself, realizing that his holiday is Halloween, not Christmas, and that even though he failed he did his best and he's ready to give his all for the next Halloween.

* All the denizens of Halloweentown's reactions when it appears Jack is dead. The Mayor sounds particularly broken up when announcing it over the loudspeaker, and the Wolf Man does a HowlOfSorrow while tears run down his cheeks.

* Though morbidly humorous as well, it's very heartbreaking to see the children eagerly embrace their Christmas presents (and you get the impression they've been very good all year) only to have their long-awaited presents ''attack them.''
