MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Graceland is holding its annual lighting of Elvis Presley's traditional lights and decorations tonight on the mansion property.

An Elvis Santa Claus is scheduled to arrive in a limousine with police escort at 5:45 p.m. to begin the celebration. The interiors of the mansion will be covered in Elvis' Christmas decor.

Elvis' Bible, his set of drums, and gifts to his daughter, Lisa Marie, also will be on display.
