I'd be lying if I said the Pudding Wishes weren't important. Making Plum Pudding is all about the wishes, not only when you light the flame on Christmas, but also as you're stirring it together in the pot. When you add the sweet to the savory, there's a lot of stirring to be done. Everyone gets a turn, and everyone gets a wish for the coming year.
Our family has added the tradition of "photo ops," taking lots of photos during the stirring (and the wishing.) Here are just a few from this year's event...
Family. That's what Plum Pudding weekend is all about. The people in these photos live in Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Georgia, California and Cape Cod, but for this one weekend, we were all together, drinking wine, catching up and making Pudding.
What's your favorite part of the Holiday Season?
