The petition that was created less than a week ago is requesting signatures which will be sent to President Donald Trump who was in Charlotte Friday for Graham's funeral.
The number of people who signed the petition has nearly doubled since Sunday, when it had 35,000 signatures. By Monday afternoon, that number was upward of 69,497.
The petition will also be sent to the U.S. Senate, U.S House of Representatives, and senators Jerry Tillman, Thom Tillis and Richard Burr.
Some of those who signed the petition credited Graham's "life long work" and "impact on millions of people" as reasons for the holiday.
The creator of the petition mentioned Graham's worldwide impact in a statement shared on the site.
The Charlotte-born evangelist died from natural causes at his family home in Montreat, NC, just outside Asheville.
He was buried Friday beside his wife, Ruth, whose grave is at the foot of the cross-shaped brick walkway in the Library's Prayer Garden.
