Sorry Charlie November it is pudding day tomorrow or if you are a Southern personage Stir up Sunday. And yes the tradition went on in our family until my Wife passed away. It was a day of family gathering and for the children an insight into adults having fun as some of the pudding spirit made its way to the tummy. Being brought up on smallholdings and farms we kids knew you took good care of all the animals until the day came then------, oh well that's life. Nearly everything else came out of the garden or orchard and Church was part of Christmas as we never forgot the main theme of it all, those days may be gone though we as family still all get together and enjoy the day. Yes Church is still part of it for the Grandchildren too.
Thanks for the heads up Runnybeak sounds a lot like my life, a village and farm oriented life to 18 then the forces. an after life of Engineering management and very happy retirement and yes still big family get togethers, a mob just left after eating all my biscuits and quaffing tea, I would not change a thing.
