When the last gift is opened and the stockings are empty, it can sometimes be overwhelming to think about having to make a full Christmas dinner.
The traditional alternative is to seek out the nearest Chinese restaurant. And that’s still a pretty good bet. Many major chain restaurants are closed on Christmas (though, since they’re often franchised, the owners of some locations could decide to welcome customers). There are some other dining options, though. And maybe even more than you expect.
Hours may vary and some municipalities have laws prohibiting major stores from opening on Christmas. And not every location follows the company’s suggested hours. It’s always a good idea to call first.
