  "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." This is a saying repeated by Newfoundlanders and Labradorians for generations. The importance of leisure time has never been forgotten. Years ago when there may have only been one radio in the community people found sources of recreation in kitchen parties, "times", card games, and mummering around Christmas time. Today, despite all of the new technology, things such as mummering and playing pond hockey are still popular. Although some of the activities have changed recreation still remains an important part of our daily lives.
