While being gloomy into the woods he suddenly comes across the other holidays including  St. Patrick’s Day Town, Easter Town , Thanksgiving Town,  Independence Day Town  and finally Christmas Town, The one he fell into after opening the door  was Christmas Town. He decided to come back into Halloweentown to tell everyone his newest discovery.
