The Mummer's SongBook - 1993
An esoteric Newfoundland tradition captures the spirit of Christmas and Halloween, combining them in an unusual ritual. An elderly woman and her two grandsons are visited by a band of 20 "mummers"--masked and costumed neighbors who make merry. The words to a popular song describe the custom of neighbors visiting from house to house for singing, dancing, and refreshments. Full-color illustrations.
