Families are always looking for something to do with the relatives during the holidays. Well Christmas at the Billy Graham Library may be a place that you may have overlooked. Christmas at the Library was named one of the Top 100 Events in the U.S. by the American Bus Association (ABA) and a Top 20 event by the Southeast Tourism Society. And one of the biggest draws is the live nativity scene. The live nativity that offers a glimpse into the wonder of the first Christmas and starts every evening at 5pm. If you come a little earlier, between noon and 2pm, you can pet the animals.
