Pomp & Ceremony


Today is the annual Lord Mayor's Parade.  Every year since 1189 a new head of London City's square mile is elected and travels in a golden coach from Mansion House to the Royal Courts of Justice where he swear allegiance to the ruling Monarch. Thousands take part in the procession which will all end with a grand fireworks display over the Thames.

Enjoy.

I applaud the British for retaining so many of their traditions. Yes, the times are changing for all of us, but it is good to have roots and to honor them as the British do.
