On a cold, clear Newfoundland night shortly after Christmas, several outlandishly costumed mummers appear, and Granny's house suddenly erupts in a burst of joking and tomfoolery, raucous singing and exuberant dancing. Granny and her two young charges are instantly caught up in the merriment. When the evening's festivities come to a close, the mummers bid a fond farewell until next year.

Popular singer Bud Davidge wrote "The Mummer's Song" as a tribute to a centuries-old custom in danger of disappearing. Since its publication in 1973, it has fostered a revival of mummering, as noted author and Newfoundland son Kevin Major points out in his afterword.
