There are a lot of reasons you might want to go out for your Christmas Day meal: you hate to cook, your family hates it when you cook, you're going to be alone, you have too many coming for Christmas Day and can't fit them in your house, you like restaurant food, you hate to clean-up, etc. Whatever your reason, finding some place open on Christmas Day is a really hard task. That is the one day of the year that almost every restaurant and store is closed.
