The Halloween season is a great time of year for children of all ages. As a kid I loved dressing up in the costume I got from Caldor and heading door to door, pillowcase in hand, to collect Tootsie Rolls, Ring Pops, Fun Dip and Bottle Caps. The costumes were never a perfect fit and the masks produced a pond of sweat from your face but it was still magic.

With Halloween soon approaching News10 ABC reports that an estimated $3 billion will be spent on costumes in 2021. The National Retail Federation forecast a busy season with the expectation of more Americans getting dressed up and Trick-Or-Treating and just embracing the holiday.  The NFR report shows that superheroes top the list of most popular costumes for kids. Here is their Top 10 for 2021:
