Between shopping for and wrapping presents, singing carols and putting the last minute touches on the family Christmas tree, the holidays can be just plain exhausting. For those of us who can’t find the time — or the will — to cook a fancy meal for the whole family, however, there is hope thanks to some restaurants in the area who have chosen to keep their doors open for the Christmas holidays.

Here’s a list of what’s open and available over the extended holiday weekend.
