Tania, I can tell you put a lot of thought into the many meanings of the word "cross." I believe you're right about the cross pendants being worn worldwide and I'd never even thought of "hot cross buns." With many outstanding entries, judging was difficult (again). Congratulations on a second-place win! And thank you for supporting the contest. Best wishes, Carolyn

Hot crossed buns always have my full support, Tania! You missed, "Swastika" aka "Greek Cross" although it was a good luck symbol to Native American as well as India Indians (Sanskrit = "well being"), but not so lucky for millions of Europeans, so perhaps it is best forgotten! Aloha! Rico
