There are plenty of reasons to dine out on Christmas Day. Perhaps you are part of the 11% of Americans who don't celebrate the holiday at all, so for you, it's just a normal day with way fewer people on the street. Or maybe you just want to opt out of cooking so you can binge-watch A Christmas Story 17 times on TBS. Perhaps you are super freakin' lazy, or you just want to eat two dinners and it's Christmas, so hand over the pancakes, damn it.
At any rate, these are the best nationwide chains that will be open for business on Christmas. Go ahead and visit. No one is judging here. Except maybe your family. But hey, they judge you for everything anyway, right?
