Although most retailers and restaurants are closed on Christmas Day, a few places are open including those in the list below

Every year as I post this list, I hear from readers who are upset that not every single place of business is closed on this holiday, I encourage you to remember that there are many reasons why many of these companies are are open, including:

* Giving people a place to eat after a long shift in the hospital or fire station;

* provide a place to purchase over-the-counter medicines for a sick family member or friend; and

* Providing the much-needed income to key workers who have struggled to make ends meet, especially in this incredibly challenging year (I hear from several people every year who say they volunteer to work because of the bonus payment report at Christmas)
