The Bottom Line: February 12th is National Plum Pudding Day!
The Full Story:
February 12th is National Plum Pudding Day! Plum pudding, a traditional Christmas treat dating back to the 17th century, contains – shockingly enough – no plums, but it does include many other delicious ingredients including nutmeg, raisins, nuts, apples, cinnamon, and dates.
In England, it is tradition to have every person in a household simultaneously hold onto the wooden spoon together to help stir the batter. As they stir they also have to make a wish!
During the Puritan reign in England, plum pudding was outlawed for being “sinfully rich.” So what are you waiting for? Go eat some – you heathenish sinner!
