The Clarenville Scouts and leaders were busy on Mon­day, Dec. 17, as they gath­ered their sil­li­est garb and pro­ceeded to head out to var­i­ous homes in Clarenville and Shoal Har­bour to spread some Christ­mas cheer.

The Scouts, trans­ported by the lo­cal CREST bus, went to eight homes in the area as mum­mers danced and en­ter­tained.

The long­stand­ing New­found­land tra­di­tion was a sur­prise to many of the res­i­dents—tak­ing in the hand­ful of brightly coloured mum­mers while the clas­sic Mum­mer’s Song played.

With the as­sis­tance of the CREST bus, the Clarenville Scouts as­sem­bled to mum­mer again this year lead­ing up to Christ­mas. The mum­mer­ing Scouts on Dec. 17 in Shoal Har­bour.

These mum­mers def­i­nitely needed some warm boats to wear.

The mum­mer­ing tra­di­tion re­mains a strong one in New­found­land and Labrador.

There were enough mum­mers on hand to fill this small pa­tio.
