April 6. Day 97. Confessions of a lapsed Catholic

Hot Cross Buns,
Hot Cross Buns.
One a penny, two a penny
Hot Cross Buns
If you have no daughters give them to your sons
One a penny, two a penny
Hot Cross Buns
I was born and raised Catholic but there's not much left of the Catholic school girl (except the guilt thing obviously).
Still there are some traditions that I hang on to religiously (pun intended).
Good Friday traditions lead the pack. Hot Cross Buns must be consumed on Good Friday and only Good Friday. To eat them before then would be unthinkable. To eat them after Good Friday would be impossible as there won't be any left. And it must be a traditional bun. None of these choc chip things if you don't mind.
And then there's meat (or more specifically no meat).
I still won't eat meat on Good Friday, ever, and quite honestly I can't explain why. I just don't, okay?
And in case you are wondering, those eggs are for display purposes only. It would be wrong, quite wrong, to eat Easter Eggs before Easter Sunday.
