I believe that Jesus, in all of his infinite wisdom, knew that someday the celebration of his Resurrection would become commercialized and shallow. He knew that retailers would start hocking Easter items in late January. And even though this made him a little sad when he realized it - he would prefer that we celebrate the part where he died for our sins so we could live eternally with him and all that. But he is an understanding kind of guy, and even in his disappointment, he wanted to make sure we knew how much he loves us. He wanted us to look into our paganized Easter baskets and know that he is always thinking of us. That is why he had somebody create marshmallows. And now, hypothetically of course, if you are going to the store to get paper towel and toilet paper, you might walk pack the Easter candy aisle because you see the Peeps. And just a little further down, you'll see the chocolate-covered marshmallow eggs. And oh my gosh, those candy-coated marshmallow eggs. See? There is no way this many marshmallowy-delicious concoctions could exist unless the big JC had a hand in it.
