Once the weather starts to turn and indoor activities become the norm, watching holiday movies with a cup of hot cocoa is just one of those idealistic winter activities everyone (even stoners) look forward to. Smoking and watching movies is a pothead favorite pastime and it’s just as entertaining during the holidays. So grab your holiday weed strain (we recommend Jack Frost) and work your way down this ultimate Christmas movie list for stoners.
Classic Christmas movies that are even better when baked
The 2003 comedy is always listed as one of the top 5 Christmas movies and it’s also a good one to smoke a blunt to. It’s hard to keep a straight face with any movie with Will Ferrell in it and Elf will keep you giggling whether you’re high or not.
The Night Before
Seth Rogan has starred in some of the best stoner movies of all time and this holiday film checks all the boxes. A group of friends hit the streets of New York City for one last Christmas Eve hurrah. You can expect ugly Christmas sweaters, lots of drugs, Jewish jokes, and hilarious debauchery during their last night out before becoming “real adults” and giving up their childish ways forever.
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas
No list of Christmas movies is complete without this holiday classic that many consider the best Christmas movie of all time. Jim Carey does an amazing job bringing the grumpy Grinch from our childhood bedtime stories to life. It’s also a great reminder that the holiday season isn’t about gifts, but about growing each other’s hearts with love, light, and laughter.
The Muppet Christmas Carol
This movie may be from the early 90s, however the Muppets continue to warm our hearts year after year with their awkward singing. Pack a bowl and get ready for Kermit, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the gang gear up for Christmas.
In this under-rated Christmas movie, Bill Murray plays a modern day Mr. Scrooge who’s working a corporate job and is absolutely heartless and uncaring. The slapstick humor and outdated costumes make this one great when blazed.
Bonus: Home Alone, Bad Santa, Jingle All the Way, A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas
Best animated Christmas movies to watch high
The Nightmare Before Christmas
All Tim Burton movies hit different after smoking bud. Maybe it’s his iconic gothic style, quirky characters, or elements of horror and fantasy that does it for potheads. The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of those movies that both children and adults love to watch any time of the year.
8 Crazy Nights
This comedy musical written by Adam Sandler wasn’t well received by movie critics, but is still a fun one to watch high. Unlike most holiday movies, this story focuses on Jewish characters celebrating the Hanukkah season. The 2002 animated film is filled with direct, crude humor in typical Adam Sandler style.
Bonus: Mickey’s Christmas Carol, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Polar Express, A Charlie Brown Christmas
Best Christmas movies for stoners that aren’t so festive
We’re not even going to get into the long-standing debate as to whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie, because it is. The action film is set on Christmas Eve where NYPD police officer John McClane (Bruce Willis) attends a holiday party that goes south real quick. There are tons of little nods to the holidays throughout the film that can serve as a fun little “I spy” game when you’re watching blazed.
Horror movies on Christmas may sound a little out of the ordinary, but the genre knows no bounds. Set on a college campus just before the holiday break, a sorority girl goes missing, sparking a series of murders by a black-masked stalker. Little do they know, the university is keeping a dark secret. This is one of the best holiday movies on Neflix and is just creepy enough that you’ll be looking over your shoulder at frat parties (and when walking home alone) for a while.
Essentially the opposite of Saint Nicholas, the Krampus is a figure in Austrian, German, Hungarian, Slovenian, and the Czech Republic folklore who punishes naughty children during the holiday season. This horror film brought the lesser-known holiday character to the mainstream and will change the way you think of Christmas forever.
Bonus: Ghostbusters II, Lethal Weapon
