Open in Skokie on Christmas

The sheer amount of options open on Christmas can be underwhelming. There's no good way to search for them adequately online, as there is no comprehensive listing of which businesses are open - and what they're doing.

Well, never fear. Skokie Patch's gift to you is this handy list of the major players in town and what each has to offer - or doesn't offer - for the holidays.
