In the Christian tradition, Good Friday is the day of the crucifixion and burial of Christ. It falls on the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday, which of course celebrates the Resurrection. Ideally Good Friday is the day to make and or eat Hot Cross Buns. These delicious, spiced buns, marked with a cross and eaten warm with butter were already being made in England in pre-Christian times.
