One of the most memorable moments from the beloved movie A Christmas Story is the Chinese restaurant scene. Because of the holiday-friendly business hours, Chinese restaurants and Christmas seem to go hand-in-hand for many people across any culture. So, regardless of if a pack of overly excited dogs stampede your kitchen or if you're just looking for a place that's not closed because of the holiday, here are a list of Chinese restaurants(after the jump) that will be open this Christmas.
