Thread Name: Origins: Oh Dem Golden Slippers
Subject: RE: oh dem golden slippers
"Golden Slippers" was a theme song for Phila's Mummers Parade. I watched it on a cold day a decade ago, standing on Broad Street. A book on the parade is titled Oh! Dem Golden Slippers: The Colorful Story of the Philadelphia Mummers, by Charles E. Welch (Thomas Nelson, 1970).
