Today's Reason to Celebrate

National Hot Cross Bun Day

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 Hot 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!

  • September is National Organic Harvest Month & National Piano Month
