Fun facts about Hot Cross Buns:

During medieval times, Hot Cross Buns marked with a cross were traditionally eaten in Christian countries since dairy products were typically forbidden during Lent.

Queen Elizabeth I issued a decree forbidding the sale of Hot Cross Buns except at burials, on Good Friday, or at Christmas; thus, they could only make them at home.

Myth: If you hang Hot Cross Buns from kitchen raters on Good Friday, legend has it that the bread will remain fresh & mold-free throughout the entire year.
