While Christmas is the time for many to celebrate with family and friends, the entire world is not closed for vacation. In the United States, dozens of stores, pharmacies, and restaurants are open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

From Walmart and Target to Chipotle and Starbucks, TIME is set up for you. Many stores and restaurants are open and closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas 2019.
