Hot cross bunsV. interesting - always wondered why hot cross buns emerged around Easter.
The cross in a hot cross bun signifies the Crucifiction. As this took place on Good Friday, it is considered lucky to eat these buns on Good Friday. Also, it is said that if you hang one in your
home, the building will be protected from bad luck or fire.
It's Palm Sunday next Sunday. Nobody really eats the palms :)
