So, now I have to find out how to make a "Figgie Pudding." Am I even spelling that right?
That's what happens when you ask your husband if there's anything special he would like included in the Christmas menu this year. He thought about it for a few days and came back to me with this. The only thing I know about Figgie Pudding is that it shows up somewhere in the third or fourth verse of We Wish You a Merry Christmas... "Bring us a Figgie Pudding and bring it right here."
I wish it were that simple.
I should have asked him what I really meant to ask which was, "Do you want the Christmas cake I always make again this year, or do you want the Christmas cake I always make?"
Any help, ideas, assistance, or direction on this Figgie thingie would be greatly appreciated. Comments open...
Oh, and I've been watching this over and over and over again as I fold laundry and I just think that boy's mother must be so, so proud.
If you liked that, you'd probably like The Three Kings as well and In Dulci Jublio and not necessarily Chrismassy, but too beautiful not to mention Misere Mei Deus.
