Philly Area Restaurants Open Christmas Day

That Christmas goose may be getting fat, but you have no desire to cook it. And who could blame you? After all the shopping and excursions to enjoy area events, why not take a holiday yourself and spend your meal enjoying your family instead of cooking and cleaning away? Philadelphia's ample dining scene leaves you with plenty of options to choose from. Here's a roundup of open restaurants on Christmas Day, serving up traditional (and not-so-traditional) fare!
