Cross Shape on Hot-Cross-Buns
Deemed Offensive in UK School

Oaks Primary School in Ipswic, UK practiced the tradition of serving hot-cross-buns during Easter to recognize the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Out of fear that the criss-cross pattern on the bun may be offensive, the school has informed the supplier to remove the cross-shape from the hot-cross-buns.

One anonymous observers commented "I have never heard of anything so ridiculous. Since when have hot cross buns been offensive?"

This is the latest of many schools that consider the hot-cross-bun offensive.

School decides to ban the bun
