    Awens to All:

    One of the Spring Time Traditions is getting in some Hot Cross Buns and I did a quick Google and found a rather good History Link on the Traditions of Hot Cross Buns and Spring Equinox Celebrations.

    “The pagan Anglo-Saxons were also reputed to have baked small crossed cakes in honour of their goddesses of spring. Variously known as Ostare, Ostara, Ostern, Eostra, Eostre, these names are considered derivatives of the ancient word for spring: Eastre.”
