What about Hot Cross Buns then?

Would that be an odd thing to give a teacher? Since I'll probably be having a lesson this Friday. :)

If you're having a lesson on Good Friday, it seems your teacher isn't big on Easter observance.

LOL! But its not just church goers who eat Hot Cross Buns.

My mother thinks its outrageous that people eat HCBs on anything other than good friday, and is also outraged that you can actually buy them on good friday these days. :)

OK, maybe I'll just give him a  bunny.

Your mother's right.  ;D

Go with the bunny. Pagan and chocolate - perfect for all occasions.

Unless you mean a real one, in which case, no!

Had to Google for the HCB....so they are something to eat.
I guess If I had a lesson on Friday, I chould bring my teacher our most popular easter delicacy:

No religious meaning whatsoever, so it's safe :)

I think that  is mammi, a traditional Finnish delicacy.  'Traditional' in cooking usually means 'things we had to eat because chocolate, vanilla, and sugar hadn't been discovered yet'.  --s.
