Today is National
Hot Cross Bun Day! A hot cross bun is a sweet, spiced bun made with
currants or raisins and leavened with yeast. Just as the name suggests,
these baked goodies are marked with a cross on the top, which is
supposed to symbolize the crucifixion. Hot cross buns are traditionally
eaten on Good Friday.
So, why is National Host
Cross Bun Day six months after Good Friday? We don't know! The origins
of this day are unknown, but we're thankful to have an excuse to enjoy
this treat anytime of year! Enjoy!
