Growing up near Philadelphia, I never knew what the Mummer's Parade was about. Thanks to this book, I now know that mumming was an old tradition "in which bands of masked and costumed merrymakers roam the streets signing, dancing, action out stories or simply engaging in horseplay" during the Christmas season. And in 1901 the old foggies of Philly, realizing they couldn't contain the populace, gave way and sanctioned the first parade.
