Watch the Skies on Christmas Eve by Fire Fighter’s Wife

Beth shares a great sentiment for the holidays or any season: May you never be too grown up to search the skies on Christmas Eve.

About this photo (which I’m still pretty sure is totally authentic) she writes: I wanted to do something I’ve never done and I couldn’t help myself. This year I was so inspired and thought it’d be great to bring out my Christmas album with a bang! This lead me to thinking, with a suggestion from a friend, to add a flying Santa sleigh to the moon. I debated back and forth but decided, it’s Christmas. Step out of the box and do something magical!

Indeed!! See more in her 25 Days of Christmas Gallery on Flickr & never grow up!!

Seeing Santa in Michigan

Do we have time for a selfie? by Tom Clark

Do we have time for a selfie? by Tom Clark

If your holiday plans include a visit with Santa, you can see where to catch his courtesy the West Michigan Tourist Association, the Metro Detroit Little Guide, and of course if you’re near the UP, a visit to Christmas, Michigan is an option. Have a favorite Santa spot? Let us know in the comments.

Tom took this back in 2015 at Bay City’s 2nd annual “Santa Claus for the Cause” event. No word on if the event will return post-pandemic, but here’s hoping because it seemed like a really cool idea! See more in Tom’s Whimsical Things gallery on Flickr & view and purchase prints on his website.

Tom took this shot of the assembled mob of Santas at the 2nd annual “Santa Claus for the Cause” event last Thursday (Dec 17) in Bay City. They raised over $15,000 for a bunch of worthy charities in Bay City with sales of Santa suits. More about the event from mLive – I’ll try and give you an early heads up for this next year too!
