Whether you’re making a big batch of Eggnog or searching for a last-minute bottle of wine to give your holiday host, it’s not uncommon to find yourself in need of booze on Dec. 25. But are any stores actually going to be open?

In the United States, most liquor laws are written by individual states rather than at the federal level, meaning depending on where you live, there will be a plethora of differing regulations regarding when shops can sell alcohol. Blue laws, which restrict certain activities and business operations on Sundays and/or religious days, are still alive and well in many regions across the United States.

If your state doesn’t suffer from strict blue laws, you could still run into varying standards depending on the county and municipality. So even if it’s legal to sell alcohol on Christmas in your home state, we always recommend calling ahead to double check the shop is open before heading over.
