The mummers devote an entire year to crafting their costumes, writing their skits and rehearsing their performances. Where does it originate? Mummers have their roots in the past, tracing as far back as ancient Egypt. They're best documented during the medieval period, where the mummers' play was a popular pastime for the poor. There's a wide variety of mummer plays, but they're characterized by big masks and pantomime traditions. These Mummers perform various skits that satirize and make fun of current events and pop culture. Sometimes, they poke fun of the parade itself, as was the case by the Rabble Rousers group, part of the Landi Comic Club. Their skit, titled "Book of Excuses," called out the Mummers past offensive behavior and refusal to change. Photo from the 2017 Philadelphia Mummers Parade.
