Traditionally it should only be stirred in a clockwise direction using the right hand to avoid evoking the devil, while legend dictates that porridge be referred to as "they", and should be eaten standing up.

The kitchen dressers of Highland crofts often contained a "porridge drawer" which was filled with freshly cooked porridge that could be cut into squares when cold and taken onto the hills for sustenance.

I'll stick to my 3 Shredded Wheats for breakfast...

But I do like oats when they're in a sweet item like HobNobs or ginger parkin.

in the south of England 'sweet' - sugar only.
in the north of England 'sweet & sour' sugar & salt.
in Scotland just salt.

with avoiding salt mine is made with water and a spoonfull of honey

Though i've heard some people use milk instead of water.

All a matter of taste ;)
