Hi folks... I see that all of the posts here are older so I'm hoping that we can update the information for December of 2018. Does anyone know of nice restaurants that are open Christmas Day in either Kelowna or West Kelowna?

Well, plan ahead either buy groceries or take-out on the 24th and be prepared for that 1 day not being opened.


I repost what I said 4 years ago, why do people need business open every day.

Just because you don't need or want a business on a certain day(s) doesn't mean everyone doesn't need or want to them to be open on said day(s).

As for the workers, many prefer working days you'd care not to work.

Yep, because people are to damn lazy to actually learn to cook.

Well since there is 364 other days (365 in a leap year), then yes. Lazy part is very evident simply with raise of services like Skip the Dishes.

Of course I was raised in much different era, was taught the skills needed i.e cooking/baking, personal financials etc

Well, guess what Gordon? There are people that want to use services on that one day that doesn't fall within your other "364" days of the year.

All I am saying is its a shame nonessential services have to be open every day of the year.

Thats cool, thats your opinion, but the fact is that not everyone shares your personal values.

Just for an FYI, a majority of Chinese do not celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December. As a coworker of mine stated, many wait until Chinese New Year for their big celebrations. There are also people out there who do not celebrate Christmas at all, eg Jehovah Witness, maybe they own a restaurant and wish to have it open.

As other's have said, it is not wrong to want to eat out on Christmas Day, even though in the past it was one of those days that every damn business everywhere was closed, that is not the "norm" anymore.

Oh look at this guy LEVITATING above us lazy idiots

GordonH - there hasn't been an "era" where personal financial skills were "taught". As a Financial Advisor, I can attest to the lack of education in public schools and the general lack of knowledge people have around taxes, credit scores, debt ratios and other financial topics. Consider yourself LUCKY you had someone who invested the time into helping you learn about this - not someone who should judge those who categorically are the "normal".

As for the topic - it's not up to you to judge or decide what people should/not do with their civic holiday. If you don't believe businesses should employ on Christmas Day - don't use them. And don't work there. Otherwise, the decision is not yours, but shaming people or calling them lazy because they feel otherwise is ignorant and righteous of you.

Not everything is about you Gordon.
Why do you feel the need to be incrediblely rude and condisendung about how others spend Dec 25th?

I for one am flying back home on the 25th after being abroad for longer than most food will last in my fridge.
Do I have your permission to eat something besides crackers on Christmas Day?

Unbelievable

Well, my teachers of life skills were my parents... not public the school system. They were barely able to teach the 3 R's, couldn't bothered with life skills.

Just calling it as I see it, its called my opinion
