Whether making a batch of eggnog or searching for a last-minute bottle of wine for a holiday host, it’s not uncommon to find yourself in need of booze on Dec. 25.

In the United States, most liquor laws are written by individual states rather than at the federal level, meaning that there are different regulations on when shops can sell booze. Blue laws, which restrict certain activities and business operations on Sundays or religious days, are still alive and well in many regions across the United States.

It’s worth noting that this year’s holiday falls on a Sunday, which might affect the opening of liquor stores. Several states, such as Florida and Georgia, have varied standards depending on the county or municipality, too. It’s worth a call to your local retailer before venturing out for a bottle to avoid a wasted trip.
