The Christmas season can be one of the busiest times of the year. From shopping and wrapping gifts, to decorating the tree and home, to attending holiday parties, functions and get-togethers, to hosting your in-laws — there’s always quite a lot on everyone’s plate in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

So by the time Santa and his reindeer roll into town, for many, the idea of slaving over a multiple course meal for friends and family can have some questioning their sanity.

Don’t worry. We’re here to help!

For those actively avoiding the stress of in-laws crowding the kitchen this Christmas, we’ve got you covered.

Why not take your friends and family out to eat this holiday season instead? We've compiled a list of Restaurants that are open either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
