A symbol you love


I hadn't really though of a symbol that I love until Em posted this weeks prompt, I had a think about it and thought of a hot ctross bun, to me it symbolises family traditions and how we all want everything yesterday. Although I would call myself spirtual rather than religious I grew up in a Catholic home and Easter was an important part of our lives. Now you can buy hot cross buns anywhere and at any time of the year, then you could only order them from a bakers and you could only get them on good friday. My mum would heat up the oven and Dad would go to the bakers to collect them, smothered in butter they didn't half taste good, not quite the same when you can have them whenever you want. So I have decided that I will make my own this year and only eat them on good friday and wait to savour good things.
