Who really wants to cook on Christmas day? I know I don't! Here are five restaurants that will be open on Christmas. 

Let's face it: Opening presents is exhausting (there's no denying that), and nobody wants to have to cook on top of it all. 

Want to go out to a nice place and let someone else do the cooking for you? You're in luck because these five D.C. restaurants are open on Christmas.
