I made this Plum Pudding for my sister for Christmas.     It took many days to make.  It contains many ingredients including 12 kinds of fruit, 7 spices, 3 kinds of liquor and a dozen eggs, but it was worth it - it was a wonderful success.  I also made paper versions of the traditional charms and associated Blessings.  Everyone loved the ceremony of the flaming pudding and the wishes.  It really did transmit a hefty dose of Christmas Spirit.  Definitely a tradition to continue.
