For Americans, Easter is the second biggest candy-consuming holiday, behind, you guessed it, Halloween. Each year, Americans consume more than 120 million pounds of candy – 90 million chocolate bunnies, 91.4 billion eggs, 700 million peeps, and 16 million jellybeans – and spend more than $2.1 Billion. Whoa!
So, as you can imagine, Easter is a busy time for us here at Wockenfuss, your Baltimore candy store. We are hard at work creating some of your favorite Easter candy treats.
Where did the name Easter come from?
Despite being a holiday so rooted in religious history, the origins of the term Easter are actually unknown. But there are several theories. Some believe the term is derived from Eostre, a Teutonic goddess of spring and fertility. Other believe Easter can be traced to the Latin term hebdomada alba, meaning white week. Because of a translation error, the phrase appeared as esostarum in Old High German, which later became Easter.
No matter where the name came from, one thing is certain; Easter sure is a sweet holiday…literally! And Wockenfuss is here to make sure it stays that way!
