“Christmas is one of my favorite times of year at the Billy Graham Library,” said Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. “We want people to come and experience all of the festivities with their families. But most of all, we want to point every visitor to God’s greatest gift, His son Jesus Christ, who is always the focus at the Library.”
The festivities include a number of activities visitors have enjoyed in previous years, including horse-drawn carriage rides; Christmas story time for children; live music from carolers; a beautiful display of lights; a huge, ornamented Christmas tree; and a live Nativity, depicting the very first Christmas night. Admission to the Library is free; carriage rides are $3 for children 12 and under and $7 for adults.
Visitors can also find exclusive Library ornaments in Ruth’s Attic, plus unique and meaningful books and gifts.
The Library’s operating hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Dec. 1-23, with Christmas activities running from 5 to 10 p.m. The Library is closed on Sundays. Guests can pet animals from the live Nativity from noon to 2 p.m. each day.
Throughout the day, visitors are also invited to tour “The Journey of Faith,” the main presentation of the Library, which covers the life and ministry of evangelist Billy Graham. The tour, as always, is free.
The Billy Graham Library opened in 2007 and has since had more than 500,000 visitors from around the world. For more information on the Library and upcoming events, or to schedule a group tour, please visit www.billygrahamlibrary.org.
