Winston-Salem, NC -- Sunday night was a night of tradition and community.  It was Wake Forest's annual lovefeast and candlelight service at the Wait Chapel. The event celebrates a Moravian tradition, and some 2,300 people came out.

During the service, people lit candles, sang traditional Christmas carols, ate sweet bread and drank coffee. 

The service is one of the oldest and largest Moravian services in the country.  The event was started by a Wake Forest University student in 1965.  Some 200 students gathered then, to light candles and celebrate the traditional meal.
