PHOTOS: 2016 Christmas at the Library Opening

On Thursday, Dec. 1, the ninth annual Christmas at the Library officially started with a tree-lighting, carols, and prayer of dedication. Thousands of visitors are expected again this year at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, N.C., to celebrate the birth of Christ. The event runs now through Dec. 23.

More than 260,000 guests have attended Christmas at the Library, many who have made this celebration part of their family tradition. Christmas festivities include a live Nativity depicting the very first Christmas night with nightly readings of the Christmas story. Guests can also enjoy holiday favorites including horse-drawn carriage rides; Christmas story time for children; live music from carolers; a beautiful light display; a large, ornamented Christmas tree; holiday shopping and more.

    I really was honored to play the part of Mary, Jesus’s Mother in the Live Nativity Scene in 2016. I have applied and truly hope to do this again. This made my Christmas so special and I felt so refreshed and cleansed. Myself and Mr. Timothy Wilkerson played Mary and Joesph. I was dressed by Ms. Kathy Maas and Ms. Donna Reitzel. They were so sincere and helpful. I was greeted with so much kindness. For I am a Christian and always spread the word of our Good Lord. I work at Novant Health Matthews Medical Center and always spread the good word of Jesus. Even through the hallways with the Patients, Doctors, Vistors, Nurses, My Team Players, Managers and everyone I see. I am proud to tell them I walk by Faith!! Thank you, Tina Wilds
