Bursting time. Fill up before Lent, with all the cream buns you can eat on Bun Monday (Monday before Ash Wednesday each year). Children especially love Bun Day because they get to wake up early and try to catch their parents still in bed. If they do, they "beat" them out of bed with "bun wands", made of colorful paper and ribbon. The parents then give their children one cream puff for every "blow" received.
