People like first responders and police officers are on duty to keep us safe year-round.
But you could even find a few restaurants that were open for business for families who wanted a relaxing holiday meal. And, of course, movie theaters for those who were fighting cabin fever and want to get out for some entertainment.
Employees we spoke with didn’t some to mind putting in those extra hours.
"Well since I'm Jewish, I decided it would be nice and I have done this over the years, to let my Christian brothers and sister magistrates to have the day off to be with their family," Kanawha Magistrate Kim Aaron said.
Shane Terral at Marquee Cinemas said there were already people at the door when he arrived for work “so it’s going to be a busy day for sure.”
At Shoney’s, Harry Roche said it was nice to make some money and help take care of people on the holiday.
Meanwhile, Eddie Kwok at Main Kwong said workers at the restaurant are pretty used to working on Christmas because they have been open for the holiday ever since the restaurant has been open. “It's just like every other day," he said.
Workers at the Marquee Cinema at Southridge Centre said they are pretty busy on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
