    Do you prefer to dine out or eat at home on Christmas Day?

    I had been dining at home on Christmas Day for years. Th last time I dine out on Christmas Day was 20 years go. Meals are expensive and so are parking fees. Exorbitant fees. Dining at home maybe be boring but comfy. What do you think?

    Dining at home is perfect for me, Christmas is family time. What could be more perfect than seating in a dinner table with your family reminiscing about growing up times and beautiful moments you shared as a family, these moments are priceless and they create priceless memories.

      There is nothing that compares to eating your Christmas Dinner at home with family.

    I have only dined out years ago before kids when I lived far from family and I sure hope I never have to do that again. There is nothing like the family get togethers and of course that always includes food! Part of the magic.

    At home for sure.  Unfortunately, we often have to spend most of our holiday traveling back and forth from relative to relative, but I prefer the years where we can spend quiet time at home and have dinner here that we prepare together.

    Dining at home is best for me since it saves money in the budget. Dining out costs more and due to meals for only one (possibly 3), I do not believe it is worth it.

      If I cook too much hen I can simply freeze it to have other times.

    I eat at home. If I eat out on Christmas day it means places have to be open on Christmas. That means the employees have to work on Christmas and can't be with their families.

      yeah, you made a good point, we should eat at home so that the waiters could eat with their families

    I don't think I have ever dined out on Christmas. I enjoy being at home with family and friends, although the cleanup afterward can be horrendous.

      yes, the cleanup can be a chore, unless yr adult kids could help around
