Five Places Open Christmas Day

Why not treat yourself, and slip out to Starbucks for a Pumpkin Latte?

Everything is closed on Christmas Day. Right?

Think again. A handful of shops keep the lights on and prove to be a life saver for folks needing a pharmacy, trying to get a last-minute gift before Christmas guests arrive, or wanting to slip out for some down time and a cup of joe.

Here are five places open on Dec. 25:

1.) Starbucks: Many of the corner coffee shops will be serving customers, though some will have shortened hours. Stop in a Starbucks on Christmas Day, and there's a decidedly different atmosphere: more laid back, quiet even, as folks read newspapers, pore over their laptops or sit quietly to savor the day. The decision whether to stay open on is left up to each local store manager, so check your local Starbucks for hours of operation.

2.) CVS: Most CVS stores are open, but there is no guarantee that you will be able to fill a prescription. CVS is the spot to pick up a holiday card, pet food or other must-have item when just about everything else is closed. It's best to check with your local store to find out holiday hours. 

3.) Walgreens: If you're not a CVS customer, chances are you get your prescriptions filled and over-the-counter medicine from Walgreens. But the pharmacy also has other items you might need on Christmas Day. Call ahead for hours. Chances are you won't be able to get prescriptions filled on Dec. 25. 

4.) 7-Eleven: The convenience store becomes the ultra spot for convenience Christmas Day, open 24/7. Perhaps you're gassing up on the way to Grandma's house, you can also pick up some last-minute items, from Advil to Gatorade.

5.) Catch a Movie: Some folks make seeing a movie opening a Dec. 25 tradition. Hollywood knows that and plans to release some blockbusters, including Les Miserables. The movie musical already is picking up award nominations.
