Lucy painted her nails like little chicks. For me, they were little Peeps. Sadly, they don’t sell Peeps here in France. It’s a durn shame. For those not familiar with a Peep, it is a marshmallow treat specifically for Easter. Specifically for America. It comes in the shape of a little chick. Coated in sugar crystals dunked in yellow dye number 2 ( I presume ), the peep is an Easter staple. The peep of Peeps have branched out to other colors and non-Peep shapes. Zèlie has the pink version.
My children have no idea what a Peep is and that is sad. Though, they are learning other traditions, like the giant chocolate egg with a surprise inside. That is always a winner. Whatever the vehicle, the kids enjoy Easter with many treats and egg hunts.
It’s just a shame they can’t gather ’round for the annual Peep jousting. I’m sure we’ll find a French equivalent.
I can’t find a great Peep jousting video, but this will give you the idea …
