That Christmas pudding thing started mouths before with rum and storing in the cellar. Heavy, with that icing. But in general I agree with suckadmin, it is not the best food of the world, although it has improved. The best food is in my opinion the Italian, but I was never outside Europe, so I can't judge.
If there was icing on it, it was probably a Christmas cake, not a pudding.
You are right. It was made with rum, glace cherries, currants, spices and brown sugar. And there were always christmas crackers.
But now I am talking about more than fifty years ago.
