It turns out that the Easter Bunny brings big business to candy sellers. We're talking a few billion dollars in ales. A National Retail Federation Survey says Americans will spend about $2.2 billion this year on Easter candy. It breaks down to about $20 on average in the Midwest and $25 everywhere else.

Here are a few Easter facts to chow down on:

  • Nearly 120 million cards with be sent, exchanged, and given this Easter, which means it holds the fourth spot of the largest card-sending celebration in the U.S.
  • Americans buy more than 700 million MARSHMALLOW PEEPS during the Easter holiday, which makes Peeps the most popular non-chocolate Easter candy.
  • Besides chocolate, what other candy pops its head around the corner during Easter time? Jelly beans! An astounding 16 billion jelly beans are made exclusively for Easter. That's enough beans to fill a plastic egg the size of a nine story building!
  • In all, 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies are made for Easter every year. And, when taking a bite into one of those millions of chocolate bunnies, 76% of Americans prefer to bite off the ears first, while 5% eat the feet first and 4% eat the tail first.
  • A tradition since 1878, the Easter egg roll on the White House lawn turns the area into a massive playground for children from all over the country. Learn more about the history of the Easter Egg Roll here: White House Website: History of the White House Easter Egg Roll.
  • In medieval times, a festival of ‘egg-throwing' was held in church. The priest would throw a hard-boiled egg to one of the choir boys, and then tossed from one choir boy to the next. When the clock struck 12, whoever held the egg, was the winner and got to keep the egg.

    What's the first thing you would do if you had a pet translator and you could understand your dog or cat? I'd probably immediately let my cat know how sorry I am for stepping on her tail all those times. Recent advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning suggest the dream of communicating with your pets could become a reality.
