Bars in Michigan can't serve liquor on Christmas, neither can party stores so you have to remember to get the booze early, which I did. I caught the flu Christmas Eve though so that sucked, but I am alright now and just trying to stay healthy for New Years.
I actually am living in Toledo right now and there is only one store that sells real liquor, man that is a pain in the as$, although the one I go to is like a grocery store of booze, that is nice. In Michigan there are liquor stores every 20 feet, it's a lot different living in O-hi-a.
New Years isn't that big of a deal anymore, just geting together with friends and having a "few" [banned], although I hope I don't give the flu to my gf for New Years.
Only 6 more months till next Christmas!!!!!
