I saw this news article on line: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2003/03/16/nbuns16.xml&sSheet=/news/2003/03/16/ixhome.html
I remember an elder giving a talk at the KH about Worldly Holiday traditions. When he came to Hot Cross Buns, he made the comment to just scrape the cross off before you eat it. Hey, I thought that was one of the few things said at the Kingdom Hall that actually made some sense.
Why can't the Non Christians just do the same?
