The holidays are great, but if Santa Claus or the Ghost of Christmas Past showed up in my house, I would freak the *% out. Judging by the number of charming holiday tales in which people are visited in the night by strange entities, this is a fairly common occurrence. If I were Fox Mulder, I'd be telling Ebenezer Scrooge and George Bailey to undergo some hypnotic regression. Thankfully, Holiday Presence II is simply a cleverly named, gift-oriented art exhibit and not an excuse to gather Dallas art lovers for a mass abduction. Check it out Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at Kettle Art, 2714 Elm St., through December 23. Call 214-573-7622.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: Dec. 14. Continues through Dec. 23
