It is a pleasure to be of some assistance!
You certainly can make them in September or earlier! People think they will go off they don't; if you think of the time these were first made they had no refrigeration, as sugar and alcohol are natural preservatives they kept, if covered for ages, simply maturing with time! They used to be stored in a north facing pantry on the stone slabs, where they stayed for months till they were needed.
Do not keep them in a fridge, it is far too cold for them in there. They need to mature and the juices etc to go together!
I quote; "After the pudding has been steamed, it is kept in a cool dry place for several weeks or months if possible. It will need to be steamed for a few more hours on the day it is served. There are different ways Christmas pudding is served. Some decorate it with a spray of holly, douse it in brandy or set it on fire. Many families present the pudding in the dark or bring it to the table ceremoniously (on fire), where it is met with a round of applause."
Regards.
Neil.
