While home-cooked Christmas dinners are beloved by many, not all of us have the enthusiasm or expertise to put together a five-course meal between trying to juggle cranky relatives and energetic children. (Hint: Chinese food isn't the only option!) So, if you're looking to go out for dinner instead, here's a list of restaurants that are open for business — so you don't need to call restaurants from a car full of hungry people.
