HOT CROSS BUNS
Why do we eat Hot Cross Buns ?
There is a long traditional at Easter of eating ‘hot cross buns’ on Good Friday. The pastry cross on top of the buns symbolises and reminds Christians of the cross that Jesus was killed on.
Our local tradition.
A selection of photographs over the years 1965 to 1980 showing the tradition of distributing Hot Cross Buns from the Old Meeting House. The enthusiasm for the Hot Cross Buns can be clearly seen by the children (and adults).
When and how did this local tradition start and does it still continue, or has it as so many other traditions now discontinued?
Where in Mansfield are the photographs taken in 1972 of the of the children running to collect their Hot Cross Buns?
