Hot cross buns have long been associated with Easter and with Good Friday in particular, but why? For some people, the cross on the top of the bun is meant to symbolise the crucification of Jesus whilst for others, the bun comes from a Pagan tradition of the Anglo-Saxons. Sharing the buns with friends and family is meant to bring good luck and friendships for the coming year.
