Eating Out on Christmas Day? What's Open

There will be plenty of things open on Christmas Day besides just presents. So don't despair if the Bumpus hounds eat your holiday turkey, you don't feel like cooking dinner or you simply don't celebrate a completely arbitrary day chosen as Christ's birthday simply because it fell on a convenient pagan holiday. There are plenty of restaurants open for business on Christmas (and many places are offering delicious Christmas Eve dinners, too -- B4-U-Eat has a great list).

As always, if you're planning on eating out, remember to call in advance to make sure the restaurants are, indeed, open and to find out their hours of operation on December 25.
