My oh, my is the time not flying ??? We are in November now so over the course of the next week I will be making my cake, pudding and sweet mincemeat for those mince pies.
Some of you may keep with tradition and wait until Stir Up Sunday which this year is the 22nd of November…Stir Up Sunday always falls on the last Sunday before Advent…This tradition dates back to Victorian days when all the family gathered together…they stirred, steamed and stored and ticked off the first task in the run-up to the festive season.
It is said that this tradition stemmed from the opening line from the Common Book of Prayer which was read out in church on the Sunday before Advent which said “Stir up, we beseech thee. O Lord”
And remember to stir that pudding clockwise …East to West to pay homage to the journey made…
