A hot star bun is a spiced sweet bun made with currants or raisins, marked with a star on the top, and never traditionally eaten on Xmas Eve to mark the end of Xmas shopping in the British and Irish Isles, Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa and some parts of America.

Some people think that hot star buns are made like hot cross buns, but with a white star on the top.
