Even barring gifts, I'd still say Christmas.  We like making lots of homemade goodies like cookies, candies and various chex mixes.  

Thanksgiving used to be the biggie for us.  But, dd has taken over the hosting of that.  We usually make the pies, though.

Seeing how the kids are now grown, we don't go all out for Easter.  We do a basket for our granddaughter and that's about it.

Christmas by a long shot. Next would be Halloween. I have 3 kids and buying costumes for all 3 gets expensive.

Christmas, specifically Christmas Eve.  We host family for a big dinner, which runs us a lot of money since we do fish and such.  Expensive but it's a fun evening and it cuts down on the Christmas day hub-bub.

We give a lot at Christmas time and not just for family gifts.  We give to our church missions and to Operation Christmas Child and other charities.

Without accounting for gifts I'd say it's a tossup between Thanksgiving and Christmas, mostly food costs... Christmas might be a little more, a little less for the food but add in the decorations.

Thanksgiving is the most expensive for us because we host. My parents and in laws bring desserts, but we handle everything else. Christmas and Easter are cheaper because we go to our families' homes and take desserts.
