Alcohol Will Be For Sale on Christmas

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Christmas Day could have a little more kick because of recent changes to Michigan's alcohol sales laws.
The same legislation that allows Sunday morning alcohol sales in the state also permits sales on Christmas Eve through 11:59 p.m. and on Christmas Day after noon.
Previous law banned sales from 9 p.m. Dec. 24 through 7 a.m. Dec. 26.
Retailers and restaurants can sell alcohol on Christmas without extra permits. But local communities have the option of continuing to ban the sale of alcohol on the holiday.
Michigan lawmakers and Gov. Jennifer Granholm changed alcohol sales laws late this year. The first Sunday morning sales were allowed Dec. 19 for retailers buying necessary permits.
