Mummery in America is as unique to Philadelphia as                          Mardi Gras is to New Orleans. “Mummer” comes from                          the Old French momer, to wear a mask; pantomime.                          A masked or costumed merrymaker, especially at a                          festival. (American Heritage Dictionary)  Philadelphia’s first                                settlers welcomed the New Year with parades of                                revelers traveling from house to house, singing                                and dancing. The City of Philadelphia officially                                sponsored the first Mummers Parade in 1901.
