What I thought the Priest said was...
Christmas in our house was not complete without Christmas pudding.
For those of you who are not familiar with this culinary tradition, it’s basically a mixed dried fruit, dried fruit peel and fruit zest – cake. Said cake/pudding that will sit in your stomach for days – it’s dome shaped, and is supposed to be made weeks in advance of the big day to mature…
I have never understood it, but for some reason, soap, molded as a house hold item, a food item, a toy, or with something baked in it, like a coin, are thought of as a, and I quote, “The Perfect, fun, enjoyable and quintessential stocking stuffer.”
