Stores/Restaurants Open on Christmas Day

Open For Christmas

Definitely not a tech topic, but this was something interesting that I came across today.  Who knew so many stores/restaurants would be open on Christmas day.  I personally thought there might be a handful of places open, so I kind of feel bad for all the people who have to work on Christmas day. I definitely am thankful that I get the day off and am not being forced to work. So here’s the list of restaurants that are open on Christmas (with some personal commentary) thanks to Huffington Post:

  • Baskin Robins (really? people can’t live one day without icecream)
  • Burger King
  • Denny’s
  • Dunkin’ Donut (I love donuts/coffee, but again, one day without it is fine)
  • IHOP
  • Jack in the Box (Come on Jack, give everyone the day off)
  • McDonald’s
  • Panda Express (does not feel very Christmas-y)
  • Pizza Hut (unless Santa delivers it, not very Christmas-y)
  • Sonic Drive-In
  • Starbucks Coffee (Starbucks feels corporate so anti-Christmas already)
  • Subway (a foot-long doesn’t feel Christmas-y)
  • Taco Bell (a cheesy gordita and chalupa are pretty Christmas-y, right?)
  • Waffle House

Apparently there are some stores that will be open on Christmas day as well, such as:

  • CVS (your local store may/may not be open)
  • Walgreens (your local store may/may not be open)

Anyways, very interesting, and who knew if you wanted a Sonic slushy or hot-dog, you could go to the drive-through and get one.  In any case, have a Merry Christmas and be thankful if you’re not working and if you are working, thank you for making the sacrifice.
