Mummers’ the Word

mummers 2013The Annual Mummers Parade on New Years’ Day witnessed its 113th annual strut this year, and though I was born and lived in Philly for many years I never fully appreciated the amazing spectacle.  I watched as a child, and we took our kids when they were young, but it wasn’t until I moved away that I fully appreciated the extent of its pagentries and traditions.  When I read about the fire in a Mummer factory a couple of weeks ago I wondered if the show would go on as usual this year.  Looks like they didn’t skip a beat!
