The Night Before starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anthony Macki, is the story of three best friends and their crazy Christmas Eve. The movie starts on a sad note with the death of Ethan’s father, in December. As a sign of friendship, two of his best friends, Isaac and Chris, decide to spend Christmas with him every single year. As time passes, their career, relationships and overall lives change. Despite this, they all try to keep their tradition going until one day, Isaac receives various illegal drugs from his wife, a very important turning point in the plot. As per tradition, the three friends decide to go out and celebrate Christmas Eve together.

HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE
Now if you are a fan of marijuana, you will absolutely love this movie! Not a Christmas-related movie, but a must-see and hilarious one for sure. Harold and Kumar go to White Castle (2004) follows two best friends, Harold and Kumar, and their out of the ordinary adventures after using marijuana.At the beginning of the movie, they both find themselves wasting their lives and miserable with their situation. Because of this nonsense in their lives, both decide to meet up and smoke marijuana together. While they enjoy their chill time, they see an advertisement for a famous Burger place called “White Castle”, they decide to go there right away. Their trip to this White Castle Burger place is all the drama of the movie, they get attacked by a raccoon, smoke with a cheetah and end up at White Castle where they can’t even get anything as they have no money left (until a miracle happens but watch the movie to know more!). We can certainly say this is among the most insane and funny marijuana-related movie. Take it with a grain of salt and perhaps do not recreate what they do in the movie, enjoy it fully while relaxing at home! But in the end will they be able to get to White Castle and above all to satiate their hunger? Watch the film to find out if they managed to accomplish the absurd deed and thus satisfy their craving for burgers.

The night ends with the three friends telling each other how hard having their moms around is and the promise to support each other no matter what. Despite the tough mother-daughter relationships, Christmas manages to bring everyone closer than ever and erase the negative vibes. The movie ends sweetly, showing that no matter what can happen and how strict moms can be, the love between a mother and daughter is endless. A movie to watch again and again for a chill evening and a hint of laughter.
THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Jack takes over Christmas and decides to go into the real world and deliver the presents instead of Santa. But, sadly, the population is absolutely terrified by Jack (keep in mind he has a skeleton face and literally comes from Halloween Town!). Jack quickly realizes he must concentrate on his true celebration, which is Halloween and let Santa handle Christmas. Jack manages to get Santa out of Oogie Boogie’s hands, which enables Santa to take over the Christmas duties. Thankfully, Jack learns his lesson and all about the Christmas cheer. Christmas is saved! Enjoy this touching movie that portrays wonderfully well the talents of Tim Burton.
We end this article on a light note with How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) or its recent fully animated version of 2018 based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic. An iconic movie that will make the little ones like the older ones laugh and smile. Not only is this movie so well done and Christmassy but it teaches a lesson of love, positive vibes and care for the other. We are in Whooville where the Whoos (citizens of Whooville) are cheerfully preparing for Christmas. However, the Grinch, a selfish and cold creature that lives up in the mountain, is not taking part in any of the fun. He hates the holiday. Cindy Lou-Whoo, a 6 year-old discovers one day, after encountering the Grinch at the post office that he has a terrible hidden past of being bullied and left aside. Therefore, she nominates the Grinch as the new “Holiday Cheermeister, which starts well for him but ends drastically badly. The Grinch is enraged by how materialist Christmas is and this is when everything starts going downhill. He proceeds to stealing gifts, decorations and even food. His mission is to destroy Christmas. However, the movie ends on a very delicate and positive note, as the Grinch will realize thanks to Cindy, that Christmas is more than material. At the end of the day, what matters is to be surrounded by family and friends. We recommend this movie to unwind after a long week and to reconnect with the true meaning of Christmas, sometimes overshadowed by material wants.
We are hopeful this selection will spark your interest and keep the Christmas cheer around for as long as possible. After all, this holiday only happens once a year, we might as well cherish it! Gather with friends and family to watch our top movies for the holidays and take some time to chill!
