McDonald's is open on Christmas, these other establishments as well

The fast-food restaurant is serving meals and more on Christmas Day, though select store hours may vary — here are other options as well on this holiday

If you have a hankering for a Big Mac on Christmas Day, you're very likely in luck. 

You'll be able to grab that — or a cheeseburger, fries, apple pie, and coffee — at your local McDonald's, though hours may vary based on location. So check with the establishment near you first.

A member of the Fox News Digital staff made a run for a cheeseburger as a late afternoon snack on Christmas Day while the rest of the family was napping after a busy Christmas morning. 

She was in luck at the drive-through in her upstate New York neighborhood ("with almost no waiting").

The local Walgreen's and CVS stores were also open in the same Hudson Valley area.
