    Hello everyone.

    I don't usually start thinking about Christmas this early, as usually it is a quiet affair for my husband and I, with both of us having our children and grandchildren, as well as our siblings, living on mainland Australia, and neither of us have our parents now either.
    Actually we just had a phone call as my husband's daughter is just in hospital having her 1st baby right this very minute!!!
    Anyway......I thought you might like to see these Christmas pudding charms! I love them.....Do other countries have this tradition as well?
    I remember as a child my grandmother would put some threepences in our puddings.......but we had to give them back to Nana when we found them!!!

    The original card for the charms made me laugh......."Redeem Charm from the children for a 5 cent piece"!!!! Don't remember if this happened when we had to hand back our 3p LOL!!

    Oh and my Christmas brooches and a pair of earrings.......

    Hope you enjoy these, thanks Judy

      Oh, how adorable!! America has no such thing - just usual Christmas Eve/Morning routine. Holland has what's called "Pakjesavond. Sort of like a pre-Christmas warm up for the kids.

      Hi Tassie,

      Congratulations on the new baby.

      In England we had thrupenny bit wrapped in wax paper in the Christmas pudding - we got t0 keep them. I love the charms, have never seen or heard of those before. What a marvellous thing to still have.

      Very much enjoyed watching about Christmas in the Netherlands- thanks Bonnie.

      Thanks Gillian..............It's a boy and both doing well.

      The charms are really great aren't they!!
      I wonder sometimes how we didn't choke or at least break a tooth on the coins!!!
      Thanks for your lovely comment!

      Three pence in puddings! We had to give them back too.
      These are great!
    6. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      lol Thanks Karen, glad you remember this too!
    7. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago

      Those are really cool! Did they come with their own charm case? :-o
      Back in France we have those for Epiphany day (first Sunday after New Year I think? the three kings etc..). We had a strange rule in our family, the one who got the charm was named king/queen but.... had to do the dishes :-))
    10. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Bijou! So you are from France too?
      I was going to talk about the "galette des rois" tradition :-D

      Judy, never heard of pudding stuffed with charm! These are absolutely....charming!
    11. bijoucaillouvintage bijoucaillouvintage, 4 years ago
      Hey Kyra! I'm one of yours! :-)) Frenchie but living in Japan. La galette des rois! Oui c'est ça! :-)) Comment on dit en Anglais?

      What a fascinating post, thanks for sharing, Judy! In Mexico, they put a little Christ child doll in the Rosca de Reyes, a sweet circle of bread with candied fruit, this is shared on 6th January (Epiphany or Dia de los Reyes, Day of the Wise Men), and whoever gets the doll has to make tamales for the others. :)
    13. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago
      Hi katherinescollections, my Mexican friend said whoever got the white dolls had to throw a party. Mexicans love a good party. From Christmas, New Year and The day of the Kings thereafter there is nothing to celebrate, hench whoever out the dolls had to throw a party.
    14. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago
      Sorry *got*
    15. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Bijou, Kyra and Catherine!!!! How wonderful, thanks for sharing your stories too, and glad you like the charms as well!!
    16. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Lol Jean, that sounds like great fun doesn't it!!
    17. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 4 years ago
      Don't know much about the Rosca tradition except what I've posted here, as I see them being sold at the local pastry shops and grocery stores.

      Don't most people love a good party?
    18. fleafinder fleafinder, 4 years ago
      interesting post tassie!what are the pudding charms for?
    19. Rick55 Rick55, 4 years ago
      I've never heard of this tradition Tassie... I know it must be exciting for the kids :-)
    20. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Hi Flea, Some people poke the charms (or silver coins) into the Christmas pudding slices that are for the children. Depending on the number of children you have there, not everyone would find a charm as there are only 9 in this set.......so if you found one you were lucky!!
      As it says on the card for the charms.......get the charms back from the children by giving them a 5c piece for it. So now you have the charms to use again next Christmas!! Just a bit of fun for the kids Flea........
    21. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Thanks Rick, yes I do remember the excited squeals of "I found one" Lol :)
