Everyone loves those marshmallow peeps that make their way into stores right about Easter time. It certainly appears that the folks at National Geographic love them, and have launched a really fun photo contest once again in 2010. Dubbed Peeps in Places, I think they’re trying to create the ultimate travel “peep show”, and if this year is like other years, you will be so amused at the great photos of peeps around the world!
Check out the photo gallery of peeps to see some of these adorable Easter mascots all dressed up to capture the theme of the place they’re vacationing. Some of these photos are perfectly “peeposterous”. Next time you’re traveling, be sure to take your peep too, and maybe you will be published on NationalGeographic.com too.
