Peep this chart, bruh:
Americans will spend more on Easter this year than ever before. As you can see in the chart above, US consumers will spend almost a billion dollars more on Easter festivities in 2016 than in 2015. Compare that to the start of the decade, and consumers have increased retail spending for Easter by 33%!
What the fuck is good with this, fam? I was always under the assumption that Easter was the Christian holiday that held the most religious significance, but I didn’t know that meant Americans went apeshit at Wal-Mart and Party City for it. I mean, Christmas got the trees, the lights, the stockings, the cookies, the chocolates, and motherfuckin’ Santa Claus. Halloween got the pumpkins, the pies, the candy, and the costumes. But Easter? FUHHHGETTTABBOTTTIT.
