Scores of volunteers make Christmas in Salem work, including tour guides and house captains - thanks to everyone involved for another wonderful event.
I also got to stop in at Ye Olde Pepper Candy Companie for their annual Holiday Open House, which included a candy cane making demonstration, candy canes formed into children's initials, and free samples. It was decadent, sweet, and festive.
Visit Salem.org/holidays for the schedule of upcoming events, including candlelight tours of The House of the Seven Gables, a Big Band night at Rockafellas, and Salem's Open House Shopping Night on December 16.
'Tis the season!
