Each year Union Cross Moravian has the pleasure of presenting a Candle Tea to the Union Cross Academy fourth graders. A historical perspective is presented to educate them about the first settlers of Moravians in North Carolina. Our customs and traditions are offered with a hands on approach. They have the opportunity to see how the candles are made out of beeswax, learn about the symbolism of the Advent wreath, the purpose of the Moravian Star, hear the band play, and partake of an actual Moravian candle tea. Below are some of the preparations for their arrival. We hope that they enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed doing it for them.
