I do love traditions.
Apparently (according to Wikipedia) Stir-up Sunday is one of the essential British traditions. Introduced to the Britain by Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria.
We didn’t participate this year.
Do you recall I’m taking Christmas off?
That means no home-made Christmas puddings. No gathering together to stir the pudding in our kitchen.
I knew I’d feel a twinge of guilt as I typed this post.
Particularly as I had the ingredients to make the pudding.
Guilt however, is a negative emotion, and isn’t the right reason for doing something. That’s the point, for one year, this year, there is no obligation. I’m giving myself a free pass.
(All the traditions may be reinstated next year, who knows? The idea is that we identify what we genuinely missed doing and what we didn’t.)
There’s a new tradition this year. One for my virtual home.
This year (and every year) I’ll be sending out a Christmas pudding to one lovely reader.
And here it is:
(Aldi UK did supply the pudding for me to sample, but I’m happy to pass it on and I’m paying the postage! After all I’m eating out this Christmas day!)
