Chim Chim Cher-ee

By Linda Tancs

Even chimney sweeps have a holiday to call their own.  Around 400 years’ strong, the Sweeps Festival has morphed from a May Day procession to a festival weekend with merriment enough to evoke memories of ol’ Bert in Mary Poppins.  Held in the town centre of Rochester, England, the event this weekend features music, dancing and entertainment coinciding with Morris celebrations of spring.  Sounds supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, doesn’t it?
