Take a stroll with the Ghost of Christmas Past on the Christmas Candlelight Tour of Edenton’s historic downtown. This self-guided walking tour lets you marvel at the beautiful decorations ushering the Christmas spirit into these awe-inspiring historic homes. Some decorations channel Edenton’s Southern heritage and others take a timeless approach, letting visitors imagine what Christmas might’ve looked like among Edenton’s earliest residents. This two-day event usually takes place on the second Friday and Saturday of December during the evening so that you can watch the twinkling lights grow brighter against the December dusk. You can get tickets the day of the event, but tickets are less expensive if you get them in advance. Visit the Penelope Barker House Welcome Center’s website for more information.
