We've listed down scary movies you can watch and costume ideas for Halloween, but what if you're not as into the spook fest as you are when it comes to other occasions and holidays? Here are five movies you can watch instead of the usual horror flicks this season.
1 New Year's Eve
Trade the tricks and treats for fireworks and fresh beginnings in this movie about New Yorkers welcoming 2012. Fun fact: two Chanels are here! Lea Michele gets stuck in an elevator with Ashton Kutcher, while Abigail Breslin tries to sneak out to celebrate NYE in Times Square with her friends and boyfriend.
2 Valentine's Day
Before there was New Year's Eve, there was this ensemble movie by the same director, Gary Marshall (who also directed the two Princess Diaries movies!). You may remember this movie as the reason that brought Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner together. Remember the good ol' Taylor Squared days? *sigh*
3 High School Musical 3: Senior Year
Can you believe it's been seven years since the Wildcats graduated? We'[ll be forever grateful to Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, and rest of the gang for teaching us about love and life and goodbyes. Go ahead, dance and sing along—we won't judge because we’ll be busy doing the same!
4 (500) Days of Summer
It's the movie that changed how we see sweet summer days, adult relationships, and greeting cards. It's the movie that perfectly illustrated expectations vs. reality. It's the movie that showed us Joseph Gordon-Levitt's killer moves. We don't even need a reason or an occasion to watch it—we'll always say yes to Tom and Summer.
5 The Holiday
This movie ruined the concept of vacation home swaps for us because now we expect a happily ever after to come with those free accommodations. Seriously, what are the chances of both girls finding love in each other's homes? (Not really a surprise since this is a rom-com, we know, we know.) Even if it's not the holidays yet, this lovely film is guaranteed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy
