When the Moravians became the first to open a school for Cherokee children in 1801, they enjoyed decorating their buildings and grounds with fresh cut greenery, candles, and written scripture banners. We can speculate that their "love feasts" and "singstundes" were the first Christmas celebrations on the Cherokee Nation. To celebrate, guests can enjoy a self-guided tour through our historic Cherokee Home with live music and hundreds of candles to light your path. Also, tour the Cherokee Farmstead and enjoy warm apple cider and Moravian cookies in our two-story Vann Kitchen Exhibit. Friends of the Vann House volunteers are ready to answer your questions and offer you some Christmas joy.
