Which traditional seasonal song mentions a figgy pudding?
The tradition of carollers being given Christmas treats for singing to wealthy members of the community is reflected in this song, which is believed to date back to England in the 16th century. Over the years the fashion for figgy puddings has faded, but in case you're wondering, the recipe consisted of figs, butter, sugar, eggs, milk, rum, apple, lemon and orange peel, nuts, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. In fact, it was not that dissimilar to the modern day Christmas pudding.
It's 23 days, 15 hours and 42 minutes to Christmas. Whey hey!
