Santa's Mailbox

Another time-honored tradition for the children of Ann Arbor.

From Nov. 26 through Dec. 14, kiddos can drop letters for Santa via the "special express mailbox" located in front of Conor O'Neill's Irish Pub at 318 S. Main St.

Local businesses collect the letters and transport them to the North Pole. Santa will respond to every letter that has a return address.

Midnight Madness

Friday, Nov. 30, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Ah, the one night a year when shops are open late and offer great deals, giveaways and holiday treats. It's an annual tradition for the entire family that you won't want to miss.

"Midnight Madness, Ann Arbor's holiday season kick-off, is almost here! Our holiday lights will be on, store front windows painted, sidewalk entertainers performing, and downtown businesses will be hosting festive fun and special deals late into the night. Santa will be there, along with performers around town."
