16 Delicious Facts About Peeps

It's hard to believe that it's been FOUR YEARS since the Peep-thedral made it's debut! Big changes in all of our lives since then--Andrew and Julie now have two beautiful daughters, and Christine is Godmother to their youngest! In honor of Easter, here are some interesting little facts about peeps. Alas, Christine still cannot look at peeps without feeling ill, after eating scores of them as she hand-sewed costumes for the 42 Peepthedral marshmallows. http://mentalfloss.com/article/56283/16-delicious-facts-about-peeps

There’s a lot you may not know about Peeps, everyone’s favorite (non-chocolate) Easter candy.

General information

"Easter at the National Peep-Thedral: A House of Prayer for All Peeps" was designed by Andrew Martin, architect and master mason; Christine McCann, master couturiere; and Julie Avetta, music director. The Peep-thedral was built using foam board, dowels, dollhouse/modeling supplies and photographs of the actual Washington National Cathedral. The pipes on the pipe organ are made of drinking straws. The Darth Vader gargoyle is made from the head of a Pez dispenser. The other gargoyles are made from pencil erasers. The Creation Rose Window and the Space Window, which can be seen in the actual National Cathedral, are suncatchers purchased from the cathedral's gift shop. All of the Peeps' costumes are handmade. The Choir of Men and Peeps from St. Alpeep's School wear robes made of raw silk and purple felt. The vestments of the peep-clergy are made of raw silk, red Thai silk, felt and upholstery remnants. The tourists wear what tourists always wear: Obama T-shirts, FBI visors, sunglasses, hats and f***y packs. The processional features Bishop John Peepson Chane, head verger Claude "Duke" DuPeep, the blind dean Colin Peepoway (from "The Lost Symbol"), a crucifer peep and two lay peeps. Please fan this page. Let's show the Washington Post what heights can be reached with sufficient Peeps!
