Thank almost all of your for your participation in this annual thread.

Also, Ding How 2 is open, but too far for us to go. Plus they don't open till 3, and I'm starving way before then.
I've never heard of Fulin, but upon googling it seems it's pretty highly rated. Which may or may not mean anything though since some ratings are "salted".

One of my buds gave me the scoop on Fulin. He lived in Cali, loves the Asian food, he says it's the way to go. Needless to say, I trust his opinion on this subject.

We'll give it a try, but not on Christmas Day.

Is liking Asian food considered "cultural appropriation"? (A phrase which is one of the craziest things I've ever heard.)

Only if you're a liberal who believes that everybody should live and let live; provided it is in their image and way.

Fullin is good; at least the one that I'm familiar with on HWY 72 Target Shopping Center in Madison.

Merry Christmas !

Maybe to a rightie trying to find their latest topic of the day to be mad about, lol.
Only was going to hit post to recommend Fulin anyway. We really like it, may end up there ourselves (local one) if I can't manage you get it together and cook.

Any ideas?
I don't live in Huntsville - in fact, I have never been there. However, not everyone on earth was blessed with a large, warm and welcoming family. Or with friends. I know there are many transplants in Huntsville. People can be very "family oriented" but that could, and often does, mean that they are oriented towards their own family. That may not include you.

We have eaten out on several major holidays, because we don't have family where we live. Trust me, nothing is more depressing than cooking a big meal for one or two.

People who work on holidays, generally enjoy the generous tips that come along with the gig.
Some of them have no relatives, and see it as an opportunity to earn extra money.

OP, please do not feel guilty about wanting to eat out on Christmas day - or on any other holiday.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I won't feel guilty at all. Nope, not at all.

Every New Year's Day I order pizza to eat during football games. Another awesome tradition.

I've never eaten there before, but Royal Rose Diner is open on Christmas Day as well.

No need to feel guilty, since (as someone else said), they aren’t FORCED to be open on Christmas... and do you all know why the Jewish tradition is to go out for Chinese food? Because many Chinese folks, especially those who are actually from China, don’t celebrate Christmas! They’re usually Buddhist or another eastern religion, and must have figured out at some point this is a good opportunity to “cash in” on that.

Sorry to barge in on your thread (since I’m not from Alabama), but I saw it on the front page and was curious to see the responses. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, it elicited very different responses from a similar thread on the California board. And I’m Jewish, for the record; so I’ll be doing Chinese takeout and a movie at home tomorrow night. No idea what my family and friends will be up to, so that’s a fine way to do solo Christmas Eve.
