WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Most aren't putting all of their eggs in one basket this year. Easter is being kept on a budget.
According to the National Retail Federation, people are looking for creative ways to celebrate the holiday to keep finances in check.
Still, the average person celebrating Easter will spend an estimated $145.00. Most of that will be spent on food and keeping up with tradition.
"We usually will do the Babkya bread with colored eggs in the morning for breakfast and all the kids love it," said Stephanie Haile of West Springfield.
"We have people from all ethnic backgrounds that come in and shop so our job is to try to provide everything that everybody wants. From traditional Polish food to Italian foods. There's a Russian community here and Latino population," said West Springfield Big Y Store Director Mike Messer.
And what's Easter without the candy? The average person will spend around $20 stocking up on jellybeans, chocolate and of course the peeps.
"My daughter she has probably three different Easter baskets right now. One from me, one from her father and his parents and her aunt, it's crazy."
Making it the second biggest candy selling holiday, which isn't good news for the chocolate bunnies!
The National Confectioners Association found 76% of people go for the ears first.
