Total Easter spending expected to be lower than in 2018


Every holiday has its traditions and Easter is no exception, but the spending that goes with those traditions can add up.

According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, the average consumer plans to spend $151.21. Those surveyed said they planned to spend their money mostly on candy for kids, food, and clothing for the big day. One parent told us that, along with attending church and Easter egg hunts, dinner plays a big role in her family’s celebrations.

“My grandma has a huge kitchen, so her and my mom and my aunt would normally cook and then we would have the duty of kitchen after. So, they did all the cooking, we did all the eating and the clean-up,” Jennifer Chesonis, Parent, says with a laugh.

She’s not the only one, the survey shows that the average consumer is planning to spend almost $50 on food alone.
