Christmas in Michigan

Celebrate the Holidays in Michigan

Christmas is a magical time in Michigan and as the song goes...these are a few of my favorite things. Starting mid November the tunes around the state start to include your favorite Christmas carols. The city lights include festive holiday reds, greens, gold & silver. If you are wishing for a White Christmas, Michigan is where you can find it. Enjoy the holiday life, Michigan Life!
