An Easter tradition in Britain are HOT CROSS BUNS (small cakes, a bread roll containing dried fruit). The first Christians in Rome made hot cross buns two thousand years ago.
Here´s a story about hot cross buns:
In 1800 a widow lived in a house in East London. Her only son was a sailor and went to sea. Every year she made hot cross buns and kept one for him every year. He never came back but she kept a bun for him every year.
Then , after many years, she died. Now her house is a pub. It´s called “The widow´s Son”. For a long time people remembered the widow. Every Easter they put a hot cross bun in a special basket in the pub. Now the tradition is different, the owner of the pub sells the special hot cross bun, then he gives the money to the British Sailors´ Society.
