Bush library to feature holiday exhibit

DALLAS (AP) — The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum has recreated the 2001 White House holiday displays in a new exhibit.

The exhibit, "Home for the Holidays: Christmas at the White House," opens Monday. The exhibit, which runs through Jan. 5, includes original decorations, photos and videos.

White House public tours were suspended in 2001 due to heightened security after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, so this will be the first time the public can see the displays in person.

The exhibit includes models of the family homes of American presidents, including George Washington's Mount Vernon and Lyndon Johnson's Texas ranch. Holiday gowns worn by former first lady Laura Bush will also be shown, as will the 2001 White House Christmas card featuring a painting of the White House's second floor.
