Awesomeness continues after advertisement
Aside from Chinese restaurants, movie theaters are one of the few places actually open on Christmas Day, so why not make a tradition out of seeing a movie with your family? After gathering around the tree early in the morning to open presents, head on over to the theater nearest you for a matinée showing. (If you ask us, you don’t even need to change out of your pajamas.)
One thing to note: Since Christmas is on a Monday this year, most of the premieres didn’t land exactly on the holiday. From Pitch Perfect 3 to Stars Wars: The Last Jedi, the majority of movies will drop a few days or weeks beforehand, but at least that means you’re guaranteed a chance to see them while you’re on break.
