Merry Christmas? Alcohol Sales OK After Noon 12-23-2010

LANSING, Mich.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. Dec. 24 through 7 a.m. Dec. 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 Gov. Jennifer Granholm changed alcohol sales laws late this year.
The first Sunday morning sales were allowed Dec. 19 for retailers buying necessary permits.
