It doesn't surprise me
This year we only did fish and chips from our local takeaway
And spent just under $100 on chocolates for dh and I, dd (from Easter bunny and us) my younger brother and my five nieces and nephews
I only like Cadbury so we spent $10 each on each other
$10 for dd
$7 for my brother
$5 each for the nieces and nephews
$30 for Easter hunt eggs for dd and my brother which as just the egg carton ones and some solids eggs

It is abit surprising considering not everyone is Christian and celebrates Easter and not every Christians Easter is even this week!!! Ours is next week, we don't do any dairy, meat or fish especially on good Friday, so seafood on Friday I think is a catholic thing. We do lamb on Sunday.

I feel like I let the side down. I spend $25 on eggs for the 7 of us and that is it.
Hot cross buns on the other hand.....
Umm I have been buying them Jan 1st... they have been my main pregnancy craving and ds2 is so addicted to them too.

I am surprised. Wow. I was surprised at the other thread too (about how much one shopping centre made from chocolate eggs alone).
We don't celebrate Easter, so no parties, alcohol, seafood etc, but DH asked if we could do an egg hunt or something for the little guy, so I went to the shops today to get a couple of eggs (spent less than $10). The shelves were pretty much bare though, lucky I only needed a few!

Yep, I can believe that! Easter eggs are ridiculously over priced and the weather is perfect for celebrating with family and friends, regardless of religious background - I guess the same way everybody celebrates christmas (unless you/your faith does not believe).
Seafood is eaten on good friday (for catholics I know anyways) as catholics do not eat meat on good friday as a symbol of sacrifice/rememberance as it is the day that Jesus died for 'us'
That is also why easter sunday is also an important celebration as it is believed to be the day Jesus rose from the dead....
We have spent abit of money on eggs - but only because we have been eating them as a treat for a few weeks now!!
