Cinnamon roll

A cinnamon roll (also cinnamon bun, cinnamon swirl, cinnamon Danish, and cinnamon snail) is a sweet roll served commonly in Northern Europe and North America. In Denmark, it is the most common form of wienerbrød ('Vienna Bread') and is known as Kanelsnegl; 'cinnamon snail'. In North America, its common use is as breakfast or dessert. Its main ingredients are flour, cinnamon, sugar, and butter, which provide a robust and sweet flavor. In some places, it is eaten as a breakfast food and is served with cream cheese or icing.

In my apartment at school we started a tradition last year called cinnamon bun sunday. We just have cinnamon buns or rolls on sunday as a fun thing for us all to get together. We did it through last year, and this year we brought it back and introduced it to some of our new roommates. It may be small but the small things help bring people together.
