Stir-Up Sunday | The Royal Mint

Make a Christmas pudding this Stir-Up Sunday

Stir-Up Sunday is traditionally the day when Christmas puddings should be made, in order to give them enough time to mature before Christmas. It’s a day to bring the whole family together, as it is tradition on Stir-Up Sunday for every family member to take it in turns to stir the Christmas pudding mixture and make a wish. A sixpence is added to the mixture and cooked in the pudding – as it is said to bring luck and wealth to whoever finds the coin on their plate on Christmas day. If you’re taking part in this fun family activity on 20 November 2016, be sure to share your #stirupsunday with us on social media. You'll find The Royal Mint on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
