Christmas pudding

AN age-old tradition is to hide trinkets in your Christmas pudding for someone to find.

This is meant to predict your year’s fortune. A coin means wealth will come, a ring means you will marry and a button means you will stay a bachelor.

The idea came from a Middle Age tradition where a bean was hidden inside a cake. This cake was served on twelfth night and whoever found the bean would be able to be king for the remainder of the night.
