Consumers will spend billions on chocolate bunnies, Peeps, and jelly beans on Easter this year, if last year’s spending is any indication. According to an infographic recently released by Promocode4Share, Americans average $145 on the child-driven holiday.

The infographic, posted on Promocode4Share’s blog, released several other fun statistics, including the fact that when consuming chocolate bunnies, 76 percent of respondents say they bite the ears first, as opposed to the 24 percent who start at the other end. Promocode4Share also compared the time taken to manufacture one marshmallow Peep today as compared to 60 years ago. In 1953, one Peep required 27 hours, where today, that same peep can be manufactured in six minutes.

The infographic combines data from three different statistical sites to provide a fun glimpse at what was originally celebrated solely as a Christian holiday. Because Easter ushers in spring, Easter bunnies serve as the symbol of the season while doubling as a symbol for new life. The chick, also a favorite part of Easter, is another great symbol of new life and eggs, according to the Promocode4Share infographic, symbolize the tomb where Jesus remained for three days and nights following his crucifixion.

As Promocode4Share’s infographic points out, the vast majority of money each household spends on Easter this year will be spent on candy. Ninety percent, according to the infographic, will go toward sweets, which will then fill baskets to be given to children on Easter morning.
