    Hi there,

    I’ve never heard of having hot cross buns other than at Easter, specifically on Good Friday.

    Given that St Brigid’s day – Lá Fhéile Bríde – is February 1st, one Irish tradition would be to weave Brigid’s crosses from rushes or another similar material. There were also a lot of weather predictions made around this time, paradoxically perhaps, good weather on this day was a bad sign for the season to come and vice versa.
