DALLAS (AP) - Santa Claus has made himself at home in a replica of the Oval Office.

Officials with the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas say Santa Claus will be on hand through Thursday for photos and to greet visitors. The Bush Center, which opened earlier this year, advertises the visit as something for people "looking for a twist" for their annual photo with Santa.

The Bush Center stays open a few hours later than usual Wednesday and Thursday, closing at 9 p.m. CST, during the holiday event dubbed "Merry and Bright Nights."

Visitors can check out the exhibit, "Home for the Holidays: Christmas at the White House 2001." The display, open through Jan. 5., is meant to offer a recreated glimpse of the 2001 White House holiday celebration.
