What's Open For Biz Xmas Day 2012? Not Much

Here is a list of what is open in Dana Point and Laguna Niguel on Dec. 25 in case you forgot something or maybe you don’t celebrate the day and need something to do.

It happens to the best of us: You forgot something for the holiday meal or Uncle Joe stopped by and you have no gift for him.

What to do besides panic and start looking through your recycled gifts? These stores and businesses in Dana Point and Laguna Niguel are open on Christmas Day to, well, save the day.

While it may not be an expansive list, it should help should you run out of holiday ham, napkins or maybe you will want to take the family to Salt Creek Beach and the car’s gas tank reads empty.

Happy holidays and thanks to these stores for coming to our rescue, even those of us who are more than organized.

If it's not listed, it's closed, such as post office, Pick Up Stix, Chelas, Walmart (yes, closed)...

Oh, but there are two basketball games at Staples Center today if you want to make the drive to see the LA Lakers or LA Clippers.
