Jews have Matzo, Catholics have peeps. For those people unfamiliar with the blue-and-yellow sugar coated marshmalllow goodness, NPR offers a brief history. Here’s an excerpt:
“Why Peeps for Easter? The tradition dates back further than company history — way back. Ancient pagans in Europe used eggs, chicks and rabbits as symbols of renewal in their spring rituals. Over time, European Christians incorporated the pagan symbols into their Easter traditions, and brought them to America.”
These delicious pagan idols will be sold for just a few more days, but don’t worry, they won’t expire for another eight years.
