Stir Up Sunday


Today is Stir Up Sunday - the last Sunday of the Christian Church year, leading to the first Sunday in Advent next week. The ‘stir up’ refers to the Collect for today which begins “Stir up, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people”. Today is also traditionally the day for making Christmas puddings (stir up referring in this to the pudding batter) so that they have time to mellow and age before Christmas. A pudding could be made any time in the next week and still have time to age properly.
