Those of you who aren't spending Christmas at church or opening presents under a tree are probably aware of a little New York tradition. On December 25th, when the streets are barren, the city's, umm, non-celebrators feast at the some of the only restaurants still open in the city: the Chinese food places. After that there's usually a movie (another business open on Christmas). So we polled a few New Yorkers about their favorite places to chow down on Christmas day, and included where to find the closest movie theater. A few said the best bet is to just wander through Chinatown for the place with the shortest line, but click through for some suggestions and leave your own favorite Chinese restaurants in the comments. Because if we weren't spending Christmas in Jersey with the in-laws, we'd totally be getting in on this.
