Old Salem - Candle Tea

900 Old Salem Rd
Winston-Salem, NC 27101, US

"The Candle Tea, regarded by many as the opening event of the Christmas season in Winston-Salem, will again be held in the historic Single Brothers' House on Salem Square, which was built in 1769. Guests are greeted by hosts in early Moravian costumes and are guided through the Chapel for singing Christmas carols, the dining room where beeswax candles are being made, the kitchen where sugar cake and coffee are being served, and the two rooms in the sub-basement where the Putz is on display. (The word "putz" is of Germanic origin and means "to decorate".) The two sections of the Putz include a replica of Salem as it would have appeared in the early 1900’s. The Nativity scene displays for us the birth of the Christ Child."
