If anything the "Twilight" phenomenon was the it craze of the year. Whether it was books, fashion, Euro it boys becoming the sexiest vampire ever or the actual movie, rabid fans (including myself) bared their fangs at anything and everything having to do with the story about lovelorn vampire romance - but it won't stop there. The sequel, "New Moon" is slated for release Nov. 2009 - so keep all that "Twilight" paraphernalia you collected from Hot Topic.
