I’m not sure what it is, but when I see this picture of the Peepmoblie I just have the urge to start singing the theme song of that other cool bus – The Partridge Family’s “C’Mon Get Happy“!

Maybe its the soft gooey marshmallow inside and that sweet, sticky goodness outside that does it. And those Peeps ain’t bad either! :)

I mean, its not Easter without some Peeps! And have you seen the new Green Peeps? Just in time for spring.

Good Friday (Christian, Orthodox)
The Friday before Easter, commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Among some sects of Christianity and in many countries today is a day of fasting.

In Dutch the day is called “Goede Vrijdag”, which can literally be translated as “Good Friday”. In Israel, Good Friday is known as “Big Friday.” In Germany it is “Karfreitag”, an Old German word meaning “Friday of lamentation”, although this meaning is not obvious to speakers of modern German. In Malta, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, the Republic of Macedonia (and in the Eastern Orthodox Church generally) the day is called Great Friday. In Armenia it is called “High Friday (Ô±Õ¾Õ¡Õ£ ÕˆÖ‚Ö€Õ¢Õ¡Õ©)”. In Russia they call it “Passion Friday (Strastnaja Pjatnitsa)”. In Latin America, Spain, France, Italy and Portugal the day is called “Holy Friday”; in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Faroe Islands and Iceland it is “Long Friday”. In Portuguese language it is called “Sexta-Feira Santa” meaning “Holy Friday” while the day is named “Mahal na Araw” or Biyernes Santo”(Holy Friday) in the Philippines.*
