The most popular dessert is, of course, Christmas pudding or plum pudding. Traditionally, everyone in the household stirs the pudding mixture while it is being prepared and makes a wish while doing so.
It is common to include small silver coins (wrapped in wax paper) in the pudding mixture. The ones, who get these coins in their serving, keep them.
