The festive season is here and to mark the start of the season we have a special Sunday coming up. This is the first big day prior to opening the first window on your advent calendar on December 1.

This Sunday, 26 November 2017 is ‘Stir-up Sunday’, so put on your apron and gather family or friends to make a Christmas pudding. It’s the day when wishes come true, so get stirring!

According to tradition every person in the household including the children take a turn to stir the Christmas pudding mixture and make a wish.

The Christmas pudding is one of the essential Christmas traditions and is said to have been introduced to Britain by Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria.

Stir-up Sunday is the basis for Mr Darcy’s latest adventure in Mr Darcy and the Christmas Pudding. All his friends take a turn stirring the mixture. Can you guess Mr Darcy’s wish?

Join in the fun and get cooking with family and friends this Sunday. Good luck!

You can buy Mr Darcy and the Christmas Pudding here in Australia and here in the UK.
