Fri, 24 Dec 2010 10:32:53 GMT — Michigan's revised liquor laws allow more options to buy booze on Christmas day. 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. December 24 through 7 a.m. December 26. No extra permits are required to sell alcohol on Christmas, but local communities can pass resolutions or ordinances that continue to ban the sale of alcohol on the holiday. Michigan lawmakers and Governor Jennifer Granholm recently changed alcohol sales laws. The first Sunday morning sales were allowed last week, for retailers buying necessary permits.
