Christmas Adventure

Billy Graham Library Christmas Cross

Charlotte, NC – Something about twinkling lights and horse-drawn carriages that I can’t resist… especially at Christmas, and this Christmas in particular. Away from the News, away from worries of our own, we traveled only a few miles to arrive at a place that conjures up a very  special Christmas spirit: The Billy Graham Library, Christmas at the Library.

The giant wreath adorns the silo at the barn.

They have wrapped hundreds of trees with white lights, collected simple Christmas picture books for story time, and lined up private horse-drawn carriages for the taking.

Having my dad with us made this adventure special!

The LIVE nativity scene left C awe-struck.

I mean it even had a camel!

They also have LIVE Christmas music performances of all your favorite holiday standards.

The cost was $10 for parking. Carriage Rides were $7 for adults and $3 for children. They did not charge us for Baby Q!

It was my first time at the library and I was impressed. This was a great way to spend the evening. Can’t get to Charlotte? Where ever you are, get out there and enjoy all the special experiences this holiday has to offer. I think we could all use a little cheering up.

Peace.
