Christmas belongs to the Upper Peninsula. It's all ours. Not the holiday.. the town... Christmas, Michigan. It's been ours for eighty years and it always will be. Christmas (the town) is where Christmas (the holiday) is on display all year 'round and all the trappings of the season are never all taken down, because, in Christmas (the town), Christmas (the holiday), brings visitors there all year to investigate the place that is named for the most celebrated holiday in the world.
Charlotte Kawbawgam who is pictured above is a Michigan U.P. Woman in History. This Marquette area Native American changed the rights of Native Americans in a profound way and has become nearly lost in time. I expect few have heard this story.
