Christmas Day in the United States - Time and Date

More than three times as much is set to be spent by online shoppers on Christmas Day this year than by those who are heading to the shops on Christmas Eve. 

Figures from analysts the Centre for Retail Research suggest that 5.8m people will take to the shops on Sunday spending a total of £284m. 

Another £150m is estimated to be spent online in the run up to Christmas by last-minute shoppers taking advantage of offers such as Amazon's two-hour delivery window.

Easter, nope. Carnival… not a chance in hell. Christmas, nobody plays at Christmas. Well, in England they do, in fact they play a lot. There are four matchdays between December 22 and January 1 in the Premier League this season. But even the English take Christmas Day off. December 25 is the one day of the year that the majority of the world stop altogether.

That wasn’t always the case, however. Because 92 years ago, back on December 25, 1925, Brazil not only played a football match, they played one against Argentina.

And about 30,000 locals in Buenos Aires joined them. It wasn’t just a friendly kickabout, either. It was in what was effectively the final of the tournament now known as the Copa America.

Christmas Day is a great time to relax and celebrate with friends and family but that doesn't mean that you won't need to run to the store for batteries, missing ingredients, or even last-minute gifts. Here you'll find what stores are open on Christmas Day including their hours for that day.

Tip:  A quick note before you run out to the stores on this list — call before you go. Often the decision of opening on Christmas is left to managers and franchise owners and they can make the call on if and when they'll open for Christmas.

If you want to grab a bite to eat while you're out, check out what restaurants are open on Christmas Day . I also have a list of what stores are open on Christmas Eve  and what's open on New Year's Eve .

Comedian Sarah Millican is leading a drive to tackle loneliness on Christmas Day by getting people who are alone or feeling alone to chat to each other under the hashtag #joinme.

“Some people have a rough time of it,” she said. “For those who are on their own and would rather not be, we do #joinin so that like-minded people can chat and hopefully make this potentially lonely day much less so.

Millican begins #joinme on Christmas Day morning by explaining the concept to her two-million strong Twitter following and encouraging them to share it. Then she will talk about other aspects of the day to get conversations between her and the people using the hashtag going.

It may seem like everything is closed on Christmas Day, but there are actually a surprising number of restaurants that are open on Christmas. This list includes restaurants that are open 24 hours on Christmas, restaurants that are open to serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Christmas and some restaurants that open on Christmas Day to serve lunch and dinner.

While the list below includes national chain restaurants that are open on Christmas Day, many local restaurants choose to stay open on Christmas, many of them hosting holiday buffets or special menus.

Tip:  Please give the specific restaurant you're planning to visit a call to make sure that they are open before you go. Many times it's up to the local owner whether their specific location will be open on Christmas Day.

Mr. Trump tweeted out the video, which was pre-recorded at the White House before he left for his holiday vacation at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

"My fellow Americans, Melania and I are delighted to wish America and the entire world a very Merry Christmas," the president says in the video.

The first lady says that at this time of year, "we see the best of America and the soul of the American people," and pays tribute to "our brave men and women in uniform."
