KFC is open on Xmas day for those wanting to skip the Xmas dishes

Is your local KFC on the list open on Christmas Day?

While most of us will already have our Christmas Day planned down to the minute, there’s always the potential for something to go wrong with the glazed ham in the kitchen, or aunty forgetting to bring the roast vegetables.
Or maybe you’re just looking to take some of the stress off you (after also having to organise everyone's gifts) and opt for a bit more convenience. There’s absolutely no judgement in wanting to spend a little extra time with your loved ones during the holidays. 

Well, now there’s no need to stress about a backup plan because Santa, I mean the Colonel, has pulled through, and KFC will be dishing out their delicious fried chook all day.
