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.
