The holiday season 2022 is in full swing. Some of us are still wrapping up our gift shopping so the sour cream and applesauce for the Hanukkah latkes might be forgotten in the chaos. And Aunt Bertha will not be happy if there's no port wine cheese ball for Christmas Eve. For those last minute runs to the store, we have a list of holiday hours for Houston grocery retailers. And a couple of liquor stores as well.
