One of our favourite things about the holidays is sitting back and doing nothing… because once you have a few days off work you want to chill with your family, stay in your pajamas, and binge watch Christmas movies. Now let’s settle this once and for all, there are two types of Christmas films. The traditional ones set at Christmas, the likes of Home Alone, The Grinch, and Elf. Second we have the not so traditional films. These you watch around the Holidays, but they’re not exactly based on the big day, like Die Hard.
So what is the one thing better than kicking back in a turkey coma and watching Christmas movies? Doing it stoned. Below we have compiled a list of some of the best stoner Christmas films about with something for absolutely everyone.
Top Holiday Stoner Shows
Christmas With the Kranks
This may possibly be an unpopular opinion, but we think Christmas with the Kranks is maybe one of the most underrated Christmas films of all time. It tells the story of the Nora and Luther Krank who decide to skip Christmas for just one year, to go on a luxury cruise. Everything however, is not smooth sailing, from telling their holiday obsessed neighbours to receiving a last minute phone call on Christmas Eve to say their daughter is coming home for the Holidays. It’s funny, lighthearted, and a little bit silly.
The Muppet’s Christmas Carol
One of the lesser known classics. If your a 90s kid, The Muppet’s version of the Christmas Carol is all you have ever known. It doesn’t exist without Michael Caine playing Scrooge, a mini Kermit as tiny Tim and not to forget Gonzo and Miss Piggy. This movie has it all, it’s a rollercoaster of emotion and the perfect film to watch stoned.
All the Harry Potters
Although not your traditional holiday movie, Christmas does take place at Hogwarts in almost every film and it’s always on TV this time of year. Whether you are a massive HP fan, have dabbled in a bit of wizardry, or are a complete muggle you can take on the movie marathon this Christmas. Stock up on snacks, pick out your comfiest pjs, and get ready to watch Harry battle it out with he who must not be named…
A Christmas movie with a difference, Gremlins is nothing less of a season and cult classic. The film see’s some not-so-merry mayhem take place when Billy’s pet Mogwai is fed after midnight. Next thing you know, you have a whole town being terrorised by Gremlins and Santa Claus going up in smoke in the fireplace (yes really).
So this one is highly recommenced by just about everyone on the internet at this point. So make sure you watch it with a joint or a bong beside you this christmas.
