Newfoundland & Labrador Mummers Festival HorsesMummers Festival in Newfoundland & Labrador
This 400-year-old Newfoundland and Labrador tradition known as Mummering (also known as Jannying in some parts of the province) has stood the test of time, however altering slightly to change with modern culture. Every year during the Christmas season Newfoundlanders and Labradorians dress from head-to-toe, donning themselves with various articles of clothing and so much more. They parade about, singing and dancing as they go from door to door.
The whole Mummering tradition is the making and wearing of a hobby horse. The hobby horse is an odd creation, with a horse-like head, beady eyes, crooked hobnail teeth and a giant hunch back. It has a reputation for being menacing and terrifying.
