It's time to bring out the Easter baskets and chocolate bunnies. More than 8 in 10 Americans plan to celebrate Easter this year. And with an average expected spend per person this Easter at $146 and total expected spending totaling $17.3 billion, these celebrations present a big opportunity for brands.

With a little planning, you can use the occasion to connect with a wider audience before, during, and after April 16th. By following and experimenting with these approaches, you won’t just be inserting yourself into the conversation for the sake of it — you’ll add value to your followers and express your personality in a genuine way.
