Imagine my delight
when I first laid eyes
on mythical 'hot cross buns'
sold in our grocery store

Thinking they only existed in a nursery rhyme,
they've been available in stores a few weeks now
to be consumed on Good Friday or Easter

The dough is spiced and fruited
and a cross is cut into it

According to a Church of England spokesperson,
'You have got the bread, as per communion,
you have got the spices that represent the spices Jesus was wrapped in the tomb,
and you have got the cross
They are fairly full of Christian symbolism'

And they cost more than a penny ;)

Happy Easter
