If you took a holiday from the kitchen, and wanted to grab a bite to eat on Christmas, chances are you only had a couple restaurants in town to choose from. "Nothing was open, this was my only option," said Sharon Stone. Liz Tellefsen said, "We didn't have any food, all the grocery stores were closed, and we had to come out somewhere, and this was pretty much the only place open." They are talking Chinese. For those who chose not to cook Christmas dinner, they sat down, took out their chopsticks, and enjoyed endless Chinese choices. "We cooked for Thanksgiving, so we came here and had a meal cooked for us," Richard Brantley said. Not to mention, saving on some major cleanup. "We just decided not to cook this year. Just a relaxed Christmas Day where I didn't have to worry about washing dishes," said Stone. For some diners, egg rolls trumped the traditional Christmas ham. No better way to celebrate the Christmas holiday, than with good "fortune". Some diners said Chinese food on Christmas may become a holiday tradition.

Chinese Christmas Dinner

Our family got chinese take-out for Christmas eve dinner. We treated it like the movie 'A Christmas Story', except we took it home and ate it. Then I put up the leg lamp to make it more like the movie. Hot & Sour soup, Hunan chicken, Moo Shoo pork and spicy Lo Mein. Man, now that's a Christmas dinner I'm talking about!
