Product Description

The Tradition of a Christmas Pudding Sixpence

The Christmas Pudding is one of the most loved British Christmas traditions and is said to have been introduced to the Victorians by Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria.

Traditionally Christmas puddings were made on “stir up Sunday”, which always falls on the last Sunday before Advent.

The pudding ingredients are mixed together in the direction of East to West in honour of the three wise men who visited baby Jesus. A silver sixpence was stirred in to the mixture to bring the finder wealth and good luck for the year to come.

In the past, it was tradition for every member of the household to take a turn and stir the pudding mixture whilst making a wish. Making the pudding was hard work and this method got everyone involved.

Some families have used the same Christmas sixpence for as long as they can remember! Maybe this silver sixpence will be the start of a new Christmas tradition for your family.

Please note:

The coin has been thoroughly cleaned, however you might like to sterilize it before adding to your pudding.

Adding a coin to a pudding can cause a choking hazard.

You will receive a genuine UK sixpence in an organza bag along with the history of the Christmas coin printed.
