What’s Open or Closed on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day

Are you wondering what is open on Christmas in Ann Arbor. I’ve scoured a number of places for family fun and  For Christmas Eve (December 24), my general assumption is that shopping is open during the day and closing around dinner time. Many other locations may have special hours. For Christmas, my default assumption is that places are closed except for movie theaters, some restaurants, gas stations, and some 24 hour drug stores.
