Stir-up Sunday

Sun, 21 Nov 2021

Traditionally, the last Sunday before Advent is stir-up Sunday, when families get together to mix their Christmas pudding with everyone taking turns to make a wish. The term comes from the opening words of the collect for the day found in the Anglican Book of Common Prayer (1549):

Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This prayer is read on the last Sunday before Advent and supposedly, cooks, wives and their servants would go to church, hear the words 'Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord...', and be reminded that it was about time to start stirring up the puddings for Christmas.
