Children typically think of Easter as nothing more than a day when a kind bunny leaves delicious treats for them out of the kindness of his heart.

Nonetheless, what children may not realize is that the Easter bunny relies quite a bit on the wallets of adults. Let’s take a few moments and create a list of a few of our typical Easter expenditures…

  1. Eggs and Dye
  2. Chocolate goodies and Peeps™
  3. Easter baskets
  4. The Easter meal
  5. etc.

Of course, many of the expenditures listed are small, relatively inexpensive items — but, the cost of those those small, inexpensive items tend to rack up after awhile.

Nikhil Hutheesing and Bloomberg Rankings dive into the holiday and tell you just how much Easter really costs.
