I am one of those who goes to our local chinese place on Christmas Day. It is the only place that is open.
My family usually does Christmas Eve as our big meal and present day, Christmas Day is usually traveling to friends or family.
More recently my father comes in from Florida, and they do a BIG thing with his wife’s family on Christmas Eve, then we do a smaller thing on Christmas Day.
The Chinese place is the only place open for food until 4 pm when the pizza delivery places open up.
We all like Chinese, and that way no one has to cook and clean up again.
A little off topic (sorry mods)
In this day of everyone traveling for the holidays, why aren’t more places open for food.
Especially on Christmas Day, which is one of the busiest movie days of the year.
For years I traveled during Christmas Day, the only places open were convenient stores [xx(].
