    Ever wonder what Christmas was like for a lighthouse keeper? Christmas at the Lighthouse in Northport highlights the Grand Traverse Lighthouse keepers from 1858-80 and their traditions. Each room in the lighthouse at Leelanau State Park features decorations in the traditional time period and showcases the keepers’ heritages. On Dec. 7, come out for a modern-day Santa’s Workshop open 3-6 p.m. and enjoy cookie decorating, crafting an ornament, games, campfire, hot cocoa bar and more. Learn about the lighthouse’s only female keeper and the history of the Christmas tree ship Rouse Simmons that sank in Lake Michigan in 1912.
