Mummering just outside of St. John's

Mummering is a Newfoundland Christmas tradition that is a great bit of fun especially in smaller communities. Locals disguise themselves in outrageous costumes and go door to door spreading good cheer. The hosts attempt to guess who they are behind the outfits. The whole event usually involves singing a number of tunes.
Part of the fun is that no piece of clothing, sheets or other gear is safe from use -so kayak equipment and good suits are stored if you don't want them used.
