"By the end of the 19th century Orangemen's parades were commonplace in many Newfoundland communities. The parade was one part of a series of events through the day, culminating in a public dinner and dance (often called a "Time"). However popular Orangemen's Day has been, on the northeast coast mid-July is at the peak of the inshore cod-fishery. A single day parading and dancing might mean a loss of ten percent of a fisherman's annual income. Thus many communities moved their Orange celebrations to the Christmas season, when no work was necessary. Thus we find Orangemen's Times on St. Stephen's Day (December 26th) and New Year's Day, as well as other dates."
