"Stir-Up Sunday: The liturgy for the mass celebrated in the Church of England on the Sunday nearest St. Andrew's Day begins with "Stir-up, we beseech you Thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people." During the late 1600s, when Christmas pudding became popular, children started singing "Stir-up, we beseech you, the pudding is in the pot, when we get home tonight, we will eat it up hot." Over time, Stir-up Sunday became the day to prepare the batter for the Christmas pudding (which must age several weeks). Everyone in the household takes turns stirring (from East to West, or counterclockwise, to honor the Journey of the 3 Kings) and makes a wish with eyes closed."--From "November" at eatethnic.com
