    Yes. Totally recommend it.

    Christmas doesnt mean the same thing to everyone and for some its just not as important or not something they celebrate.

    I never minded working christmas.

    Default Have you ever been to restuarant on Christmas Day for lunch or dinner

    No never. My sister and her fiancé are both chefs and I feel bad going out to restaurants on Christmas Day knowing that the workers aren't able to be home celebrating with their families. I know how much my sister has been dissapointed by having to work many Christmases over the years. And personally I'd much rather be at home or at families homes where I can relax more.

    Once and never again.
    Crowded, over worked staff, noisy and waited hours for our food.
    Dead ordinary.
    Cost plenty too.

    For me personally its too noisy, I just think there's something special about sitting in your own home, or families and sharing good foods and being able to just relax. That's my favourite part of Christmas, watching the kids play with each other and enjoying a good glass of vino

    Only once. My dad had this idiot girlfriend who cracked it on Christmas day and didn't cook...so we went to red rooster.
    Good times.

    We had Christmas at the Grand Hyatt one year when my Granny was sick and no-one felt up to cooking. It was fantastic.

    Loads and loads of people don't celebrate Xmas, and lots don't celebrate on the day, so the workers wouldn't bother me. I also honestly can't believe that there are many people working in hospitality who are on salaries.

    This is one of the reasons we have gone out in the past. Sometimes it's very difficult or emotional to do a christmas at home.

    I've always thought about it, but I don't think I could, I like being with family and I don't really like the prices they charge..

    i think you would be surprised at how many people don't celebrate or don't even care about christmas.
    whether it's a religious/cultural thing, maybe they have lost someone important in their lives so would rather be busy and occupied, perhaps they have a family of idiots and want to work so they have an excuse to not attend
    at the end of the day, no worker is FORCED to work xmas day.
    if an employer says they absolutely must they have the choice to quit and look for a better job.
    western australia is crying out for people to work in catering to the fifo mine's sector. we have sooo many restaurants it's actually mind boggling as to why they took it off the international immigration list.

    I also worked Christmas Day in hospitality for several years and always because I wanted to be there. Wouldn't go out myself personally though. I prefer home cooked Christmas food and like having lots of leftovers to eat over the next week
