Symbols - What does heaven look like

Plum pudding

Plum pudding or Christmas pudding is an egg shaped desert eaten in the Uk principally at Christmas - although its origins are 'pagan'. 

It represents the Egg.

Traditionally the person who cooked the pudding hid a Coin in the pudding and whoever found it was not only lucky but could make three wishes.  Often the coin was a Sixpence.  The reason a coin was chosen was to make a link with the symbolism of Metal.

The plum simply takes on the symbolism of all Fruit.
