The Mourning Tea: Remembering the Dead
October 25 @ 11:00 am$75
Join Salem Witches Leanne Marrama and Sandra Mariah Wright for a 3-course High Tea in grand Victorian tradition. Don your finest mourning attire and celebrate the lives of your dearly departed as you share stories of your loved ones who have passed, add photos and mementos to our Salem Witches’ Book of the Dead, enjoy live music and poetry, and receive messages in the tea leaves!
Hearken back to the lush and extravagant mourning traditions of the Victorian era, when widows wore black dresses for years and the hair of the dead was carried in cherished mourning lockets, when music filled the air with sweet sorrow as the resident bards of the long black veil recited odes to the somber beauty of Death’s final waltz. This venerable ritual comes to life at the Mourning Tea in Salem.
