Happy Mummers Day!

Happy New Year! Or as we say it in Philadelphia, Happy Mummers Day! Even our local news personalities slip into calling it Mummers Day. For those of you asking what the F is a mummer?, click here.
Want to watch the parade? Watch it streaming live here beginning at 10 a.m. MFD is in a string band, and the string bands should probably reach the judge's stand/TV area around 1:30. MFD is in the fifth band to appear, the Joseph A. Ferko String Band. Routines are only a little over four minutes long so if things are running on time they should be on around 2.

2014 Mummers Parade Live Stream

Best of luck to all of you mums, stay warm! I'll only be down there for a little bit but will be layered up like Randy in A Christmas Story. After that? Pork, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, corn, and apple sauce is our traditional New Year's Day meal. Do you have one?

Wishing you the best this year. Grab 2014 by the collar and make it shake its caracas.

  1. Happy New Year!! I'll be sure to watch the parade!!

  2. Happy mummers day! Someday I'll be brave enough to face the cold on New Year's morning at the parade

  3. Watching now! Roast pork in the oven with the sauerkraut, apples, just added some hot dogs and 2 sweet potatoes- multi-task roasting. Best sauerkraut ever. Riced my potatoes and will heat and whip right before we eat. Godspeed Ferko!
    Godspeed everyone in 2014 and Beyond!
    Love your MOMMA

  4. How fun is this...look at your man go!!!! I wish I could have seen it. And I had ZERO clue what the heck Mummer's Day was...learn something new every day! :) Happy new year!!

  5. Oh, look at MFD and Dutch all dolled up! LOVE IT!!! Hope you stayed warm today <3

  6. We usually eat lentils and pomegranates for good luck. Not together. An Italian tradition. Except this year I made tacos instead. Oh well. :) Happy New Year!
