Borrowed from Destination Salem, Christmas Really Is Closer Than You Think

It's time. It really is. The Trolley Christmas Carol tickets went on sale in September. Nutcracker commercials dance across the television. And Christmas in Salem home tour tickets can now be purchased on line. 

The theme for the 32nd annual Christmas in Salem, December 2-4,  tour is "Rediscover McIntire," which means we will be strolling along Chestnut Streets and Essex Street, seeing some of the most splendid Federal style architecture in the country. Christmas in Salem is a wildly popular fundraiser for Historic Salem, Inc. The program invites ticket holders into some of the most beautiful private homes in Salem, which are decorated for the holidays by local florists and interior designers. 

I highly recommend buying your tickets in advance, either online or at one of several downtown shops, so you can attend the Candlelit Preview on Friday night (and you'll save a few dollars by buying in advance).

(Thanks to Kate Fox of Destination Salem for allowing me to borrow this nice post.  Do get your tickets early so you won't be disappointed.)



  1. Most definitely looking forward to the Candlelit Preview on Saturday evening. I'm thinking this may be just what the doctor ordered to get me into the proper holiday spirit!

  2. Oops, Friday evening not Saturday!
