A Brief History of Christmas Puddings 
Christmas Puddings are traditionally a kind of plum or raisin pudding, and have been eaten at Christmas since the medieval period, from around the 1420’s. The puddings have varied over time, with different ingredients used and the current version was only settled upon in the Victorian era. Since then it has contained fruits and sugar and spices amongst other things. The Christmas pudding became massively popular in the 1700’s, when George I requested it be served at his Christmas feast.
