Our Holiday Sweet Tooth

candy

What do Christmas, Easter, and Valentine’s Day all have in common? Most people buy gifts for their loved ones during these three holidays. What is one thing that people commonly purchase during these holidays? Candy!

According to this article published on byu.edu,

Americans spend an average of $2 billion on Halloween candy, $1.9 billion on Easter candy, $1.4 billion on Christmas candy and $1 billion on Valentine’s Day candy.

It looks like there is a large number of us that like to accompany our holiday celebrations with candy. All I can say is…..Sweet!
