Christmas Traditions in English Speaking Countries

Christmas-Pudding Race

In London’s Covent Garden a very special Christmas event takes place every year (3 December 2005, from 10 a.m.). Teams from companies or schools take part in a Christmas Pudding Race. All participants are wearing funny costumes and they have to balance a Christmas pudding on a paper plate around a 150 metre course, which is full of obstacles.

The competition is a charity event for Cancer Research UK. There is no entrance fee for visitors, but donations are welcome.
