VIDEO: Meet Eva the Camel

Each year at the Billy Graham Library we welcome animals from Sam’s Path Petting Zoo as part of the live nativity. Various animals are included and help bring the story of the first Christmas to life. One of our favorites this year is the young camel named Eva.

Imagine a dark and quiet evening, watching as the child of God was born into this world to one day save us from our sins.

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peaceSilent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is bornSilent night, holy night!
Son of God love’s pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

In addition to Eva, the Billy Graham Library nativity also includes a lamb, another camel, a donkey, a four-horned Jacob sheep, a Scottish Highland cow, a llama, and a flock of sheep and goats. Not only are these animals part of the recreation of the birth of Christ each night, but they are also on display each day from noon to 2 p.m., where guests can come meet them, take photos and even interact with the animals.
