The holiday season is here and just about everyone has a tradition this time of year. Perhaps it’s gathering around a fire and sharing family stories or ice skating and getting hot chocolate with your loved ones. Well, here’s a proposal for the creation of a new tradition: getting high and watching festive movies. Read on to discover our suggestions for the best movies to watch while high this holiday season.
Best Movies to Watch While High This Holiday Season
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Tim Burton is famed for producing movies that are uniquely creepy yet heartwarming and The Nightmare Before Christmas fits this bill to a tee. The animated stop-motion film brilliantly finds a way to combine two seemingly polar opposite holidays—Halloween and Christmas
Jack, a dapper skeleton with the title of Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, is tired of partaking in the annual scares of Halloween. He stumbles across Christmas Town and becomes fascinated by the cheery traditions and attempts to become the jolly man himself.
The always goofy Will Ferrell stars as Buddy, a human that was accidentally transported from his orphanage as an infant to the North Pole by Santa. Buddy is raised among elves but feels as if he doesn’t fit in as he grows into adulthood and towers over his elf peers.
After the father who adopted him reveals that Buddy isn’t actually an elf, he decides to travel to New York to discover his biological family. Hilarity ensues as Buddy attempts to adapt to the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple.
The McCallister family forgets their eight-year-old, Kevin, at home after leaving hurridly for a Christmas vacation to Paris. No problem, right? They’ll just get a flight home. Wrong. Burglars attempt to break into the house knowing that the family will be gone.
While this may sound like the beginning of a thriller, it’s actually a comedy. Kevin turns out to be perhaps the most resilient child in the world and fends off the burglars with a series of booby traps. The absurd antics undoubtedly make it one of the best movies to watch while high.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Clark Griswald is full of Christmas spirit and decides to invite the relatives to celebrate the holiday. Clark wants this Christmas to be perfect but the moment his family arrives his elation begins to dwindle.
This movie is packed full of memorable scenes, laughs, and a happy ending. It emphasizes the pros and cons that accompany getting together with your relatives, making it the most relatable film on this list.
We must first address the apparent disagreement over whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie. Bruce Willis, who plays the main character, says no. Screenwriter Steven E. de Souza says it —and he helped write the movie so we’re going with his answer.
The action-packed movie takes place at a Christmas party and features a soundtrack of beloved holiday music. The party is invaded by German terrorists and Willis’ character must find out what’s really going on, mainly through violence.
