The Sights, Sounds, and Smells of a Salem Christmas 169 Years Ago

Record #:
Although the Salem Christmas 1800 program is only in its third year, it is already considered a great success, having attracted more than 3,000 people from the Winston-Salem area last year. The program, sponsored by Old Salem, Inc., features live actors portraying the sights and sounds of a traditional Moravian Christmas as it would have been celebrated 169 years ago. Records show that the Moravians had few distinctive Christmas customs and that holiday celebrations were largely a continuation of the closely-knit community life as it was lived day by day.
