Yes, alcohol can be sold in Michigan on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day - Here are the times

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Can you buy alcoholic beverages in Michigan on Christmas? It's a popular question - and the answer is yes, but there are some rules.

We noticed a large number of web searches bringing people to an article we posted when the state's rules changed in 2010, the same time lawmakers approved changes to Michigan's Sunday liquor sales rules.

According to Michigan's Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, alcoholic beverages can be sold until 11:59 p.m. on Christmas Eve. After that, bars, restaurants and retailers must hold off until noon on Christmas Day.

After noon on Christmas day, eggnog, beer, and other festive holiday spirits can legally be poured around Michigan.

Enjoy the holidays - and be sure to enjoy those holiday beverages responsibly.
