Figgy pudding isn't the only sticky-icky treat that people enjoy around the holidays. Despite all the stigmas surrounding marijuana, people across the country enjoy having a puff over the holidays. And cannabis has even snuck into a number of Christmas movies.
Here's every marijuana moment in Christmas movie history, ranked from least to most weed.
'The Santa Clause' (1994)
When grumpy advertising exec Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) accidentally sends Santa falling to his holly jolly death, he gains Saint Nick's festive powers — just like in 'Highlander' but without 'the quickening.'
Most people would freak out about suddenly being able to fly and to squeeze down even the tiniest of chimneys, but Clavin takes it all in stride. "It's okay, I'm used to it. I lived through the 60s," he tells his terrified son at one point.
So yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, and he's tried marijuana among many other drugs.
That's the only drug joke in the whole movie...unless Calvin's mysterious weight gain was actually caused by a rampant case of the munchies.
Forget worrying about a stocking full of coal. If you diss the spirit of Christmas, you might get dragged to a circle of hell created just for yuletide offenders. That's what happens to the dysfunctional Engel family after their wretched behavior draws the ire of the titular monster in 'Krampus,' who even goes after one character just for having a Christmas-themed bong.
So unless you want a goat-horned Christmas demon stalking you for the holidays, ditch the festive paraphernalia.
There's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it marijuana moment when the Ghost of Christmas Past (David Johansen) takes Frank Cross (Bill Murray) to his old apartment, where his ex-girlfriend Claire (Karen Allen) briefly takes a hit off a roach clip before giving him his Christmas present: a scholarly edition of the Kama Sutra.
But he probably would've preferred sharing the rest of the joint after taking a nasty beating from the belligerent Ghost of Christmas Present (Carol Kane).
'Surviving Christmas' (2004)
You'll need a potent indica to sit through the agony of watching this Christmas dud, which features one pot joke about an old man that reeks of weed. That's nowhere near as satisfying as watching Ben Affleck get brained though.
'A Bad Moms Christmas' (2017)
Susan Sarandon gives this raunchy comedy a cannabis twist as a grandmother who spends most of 'A Bad Moms Christmas' smoking joints, drinking beers and dancing with a male stripper dressed as Santa Claus, who just happens to be the love interest (and body-waxing client) of her daughter Carla (Kathryn Hahn).
'Eyes Wide Shut' (1999)
Yes, Stanley Kubrick's notorious final film is a Christmas movie. Don't believe us? Re-watch it and you'll see a Christmas tree in almost every scene — minus the masked orgy, of course. That's where our hero, Dr. Bill Harford (Tom Cruise) winds up on a night where everything goes wrong after his wife Alice (Nicole Kidman) smoked some bad weed.
After just a couple tokes, she becomes determined to rattle Dr. Harford's smug confidence in her fidelity, which sends him spiralling through the seedy underworld lying just beneath the surface of his social circle.
There's no shortage of joints getting passed around in this drug-fuelled Christmas caper starring Canadian actor Sarah Polley, Katie Holmes and a very young Melissa McCarthy . But the funniest moment is when Manny (Nathan Bexton) has a telepathic conversation with a homicidal house cat.
'Friday After Next' (2002)
The third, Christmas-themed instalment of the 'Friday' franchise sees Craig (Ice Cube) and his cousin Day-Day (Mike Epps) in trouble after a thief dressed as Santa Claus steals their rent money. They have one day to pay up or their landlord's son Damon (Terry Crews) is going to ambush them under the mistletoe that night.
'Friday After Next' doesn't feature nearly as many pot gags as the original, which starred Chris Tucker as the neighborhood chronic Smokey. But marijuana does save the day for Craig and Day-Day at the last minute. We don't want to spoil the ending, so check out the intro, where the crooked Kris Kringle swipes an entire crop of cannabis.
'A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas' (2011)
There's a pot joke in just about every scene from the third movie in the 'Harold and Kumar' stoner comedy series. But the funniest has to be when Kumar (Kal Penn) visits a dope-dealing mall Santa (Patton Oswalt), who sells festive strains like 'Winter Wonder-weed,' 'Rudolph the Red-Eyed Reindeer' and 'Kwanzaa Cookout.'
'The Night Before' (2015)
This cannabis-themed version of 'A Christmas Carol' features weed dealer Mr. Green (Michael Shannon) playing the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come for a trio of tokers (Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie) who are struggling to keep their friendship alive while facing the challenges of adulthood on the night of the mythic 'Nutcracker Ball'.
