Stir-up Sunday Traditions
On Stir-up Sunday it's a tradition for all members of the family to have a stir of the pudding, whilst making a wish.
Another Christmas pudding tradition is to add an old coin to the mixture. It's believed that the lucky finder of the coin will be brought wealth. The traditional coins used were an old silver sixpence or threepenny bit. Nowadays a 10 or 20 pence piece will do. Just wash it well, wrap it in tinfoil and drop it into the Christmas pudding whilst giving it it's final stirs.
Just remember to warn those eating the pudding that they may come across some buried treasure.
