SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is getting ready for the holidays with an exhibit showing how presidents have celebrated Christmas.

“Holidays at the White House” will feature photos and original artifacts from four presidents and their families. They are Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

The exhibit runs from Nov. 17 through Jan. 7.

The museum in downtown Springfield also is holding a day of free games and activities for kids on the day after Thanksgiving. “Fun, Frosty Friday” will include a life-sized game of Candyland and a magic show.

The museum also will be allowing visitors to take photos with museum decorations, including a Christmas tree in the main plaza near life-size figures of the Lincoln family.
