We've got you covered, here are the nation-wide restaurants that will be open on December 25.

Be sure to call and check with local Chinese and Indian restaurants, as they will also likely keep Christmas hours. And as always, this list comes with the disclaimer to call ahead! Hours do tend to vary by location.

Just remember, there's nothing wrong with enjoying a nice stack of pancakes or a basket of wings in lieu of a more traditional Christmas meal, we're not here to judge you.
