Hot Cross Buns

The hot cross bun, typically eaten on Good Friday, is a tradition that Christians appear to have adopted from pagans. It is said that the bun’s cross was originally to quarter the bun with regard to the four quarters of the moon. However, Christians re-interpreted it as the cross of the crucifixion.
