Plum Pudding Day
About Plum Pudding Day
When is Plum Pudding Day? This holiday is always celebrated on February 12
I’ll bet you’re tickled purple, that today is Plum Pudding Day. It’s your chance to eat some of this pudding. Doesn’t this make you happy!?! You must admit, if it wasn’t Plum Pudding Day, you probably wouldn’t even think about it, let alone eat some.
Participating in Plum Pudding Day might take a little work. You will find vanilla and chocolate pudding on store shelves. You’ll find banana and tapioca pudding, too. Unfortunately, we do not believe there is a packaged plum pudding on the market. That means you get the joy of finding a recipe and some fresh plums in the middle of February and making it from scratch. You can also seek out a restaurant that serves it. Tip: call and check before you go.
Plums are popular in Chinese and Asian cuisine. It is entirely possible that this day originated either in Asia or by someone enjoying a Chinese plum pudding for dessert.
How to Celebrate Plum Pudding Day
- Start by finding plum pudding either in the store or offered at a restaurant.
- Now that you’ve found eat, have a bowl of this pudding.
Tip: Chinese cuisine more frequently includes plums than other ethnic sources. Check out Chinese restaurants and grocery stores for plum pudding.

History and Origin of Lost Penny Day
Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day.
We did find some references referring to it as a “National” day. During our first research on this day in the early 2000s, it was called Plum Pudding Day. Around 2015 – 2017 some websites began to call this National Plum Pudding Day. We do not believe the unknown creator of this holiday changed the title. Also, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
