Oh wow! And here I thought it was a Spirit Unleashed Christmas event and I was gonna go on about how Ghostbusters is more Halloweenish than Christmassy.

I don't know why but I assosiated Ghostbusters with Christmas.
Why? May be because of the ice and the snow, especially the snow ghost Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
Ice and snow feel much closer to Christmas than Halloween.

Ice and snow associated with Christmas is an understandable thing.

I remember watching Dragons: Riders of Berk and it was the third episode "Animal House" which got me thinking, "for an episode nothing to do with Christmas, it certainly feels like a Christmas episode."In the episode, the riders were trying to find a lost sheep before a snowstorm hits. The fact the farm animals were afraid of the dragons did not help.
The animals, riders and dragons ended up trapped in a pit of sorts while the blizzard rages over them. Feeling cold and alone, the animals and dragons got over their differences and cuddled together along with the riders for warmth and comfort.

To me, this given me the idea that a Christmas story doesn't necessarily have to be about Christmas. It could invoke the feelings of Christmas such as family or seeking comfort and safety in others, as well as familiar elements such as snow, evergreen, fir trees etc.

Anyway I normally associate Ghostbusters with Halloween because of ghosts and spookiness. And while Ghostbusters were not that scary, especially compared to the cartoons, it did had some rather frightening moments.

(The pink sludge bathtub scene and the ghost nanny Janosz messed me up as a kid! On paper it seems silly for horror, but the way it was executed in Ghostbusters was terrifying!)

Terrifying indeed. Well, Ghostbusters could be both.
Both Halloween and Christmas story.

A Christmas story doesn't necessarily have to be about Christmas.
This I agree.
But also a Halloween story doesn't necessarily have to be about ghosts and witches.

I know, just hard to put my mindset that Ghostbusters can be Christmassy. I mean I know there were a few Christmas specials in their cartoons, and I know ghost stories were a Christmas tradition at one point, just ghosts ar eusually associated with Halloween.

Then you got shows like Monster High which either acknowledge Halloween as a thing over Christmas, or just make up holidays for the sake of their monster pun quota.
