Elvis' Friend George Klein Flips the Switch at Graceland's Lighting Ceremony

Elvis' lifelong friend and legendary DJ George Klein will be our honored guest to flip the switch on Elvis' Christmas lights during Graceland's annual Lighting Ceremony.

George and Elvis were classmates at Humes High School in Memphis, and they remained close friends for the rest of Elvis' lifetime. George still spins the tunes - he can be heard weekly on SiriusXM Elvis Radio.

 The ceremony is at 6:00 p.m. tonight at Graceland and will also feature a visit from Santa and kids' activities. And while the high in Memphis should reach around 60 today, there is a 100 percent chance of snow for the ceremony.

Can't be in Memphis for the ceremony? No worries - you can watch the event live here.
