Looking to enjoy a few pancakes before heading your Christmas Day dinner? Most IHOP locations will be open; however, hours may vary.


Quick meals are what Sonic is known for, and because most locations are franchised, most set their own hours. Therefore, call ahead to ask if your local Sonic will be open.

What stores are closed on Christmas?

Though there are the few stores that decide to be open for Christmas, most places decide to close their doors to let people enjoy spending time with their family and friends. 

A few name-brand stores that will not be open on Christmas include: Target, Walmart, Macy’s, Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods Market. Local grocery stores like Publix, Aldi, and Safeway are also closed. 

Happy holidays!
