11 September

So closely are Hot Cross Buns associated with Easter, and in particular, Good Friday, that at first blush you're quite tempted to think why would you want Hot Cross Buns in September?

It appears, though, that some people so love them that they squeal with delight at learning they can have them again, only a short 5 months or so after Easter, when normally you have to wait a whole year to have them again.

Now, you can usually find some grocery store bakery somewhere that sells them just about year round,

Even if you can't find them in your area today, you can learn all about their history, find out some of the myths around them -- and how much of that is true.

Literature & Lore

One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot Cross Buns!
If you have no daughters,
Pray give them to your sons!
One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot Cross Buns!
