Stir Up Sunday 2022

Stir Up Sunday at The Courtyard Tearoom in Saffron Walden returned this year on Sunday 20th November 2022.  Everyone was invited to add ingredients to the pudding mix, give a stir and make a wish. We received a fantastic turnout and a big thank you to everyone who took part.

Stir-up Sunday is the traditional day for everyone in the family to take a turn at stirring the Christmas pudding, whilst making a wish. The pudding mixture was always stirred from East to West in honour of the three Wise Men who visited the baby Jesus. Whilst stirring the pudding mixture, each family member would make a secret wish. Traditionally, a silver sixpence was stirred into the mix, to bring the finder wealth and good luck in the year to come.

We look forward to seeing everyone back again next year.
