Restaurants open in Santa Monica on Christmas Day 2021

SANTA MONICA, CA – In 2020, many Santa Monica residents turned to small, low-key holiday celebrations as coronavirus cases increased nationwide and public health experts pushed for social distancing.

We weren’t used to Christmas without the side dishes; While the situation was not ideal, many of us realized that large, stressful holiday gatherings are not what they should be. Also this year, many will perhaps decide again to make Christmas easy and without hurry.

This could mean someone else is taking care of the holidays. This also includes cooking.
