Just call it a Christmas miracle.
Between holiday shopping, decorating the Christmas tree, wrapping gifts, making cookies, and watching Lifetime movies, there's a lot to get done by Christmas...and the fact of the matter is, it can take a lot out of a person. Just ask Santa Claus! If you can't muster up the energy to make a five-course holiday meal for 20 members of your extended family this year, we're here to help. On this page, we've rounded up all the restaurants open on Christmas Day in 2019 (as well as a few restaurants closed on Christmas Day) so you can have just a little more peace of mind come the 25th of December. It's our gift to you! Though hours may vary, these 30+ spots are bringing joy to the world by keeping their doors open for at least part of Christmas Day—and some on Christmas Eve too. (Don't forget to check out stores that are open on Christmas too!) A few are even offering special Christmas promotions and special menu items to keep you feeling festive, even when you're not gathered around the tree. From family-owned eateries to fast food restaurants, there's something for everyone on our list. There's just one thing to keep in mind: Local holiday hours may vary by location, so it's best to check your desired restaurant's website for specific opening and closing times.
