As Christmas swiftly approaches, there's one thought on everyone's mind: Oh, crap. There's still so many presents to buy and fairy lights to untangle and your ugly Christmas sweater to retrieve from the back of the closet and Tofurky to order for your newly vegan cousin

At least we can help you on the last, last-minute present shopping front.

Well, sort of ... Here's a list of Christmas hours for a plethora of store chains in America; most of them tend to be closed on Christmas Day itself. Mic used store hours listed online — and called when in doubt.
