I was reading a National Geographic article about 2010 Halloween trends. I was interested to learn that Americans give about 35 million Halloween greeting cards a year, with the most popular variety being grandparent-to-grandchild. I consider myself a pretty avid greeting card sender, but I don't recall ever buying one for Halloween. The costume trends were funny to learn as well! Here are the top ten costume trends for adults and kids in 2010:

My son was just one-month old last year; we dressed him in a really cute pirate bunting costume! He's going as a dragon this year! Rarr! I wonder if dragon will make the list!
