Hi, were thinking of things to do with friends on christmas eve. A neighbour was telling me that restaurants all close on this day. Is this the case?

some are open for the reveillon but that is very late, normal service is usually off the menu on the 24th. what about inviting your french neighbours to a game of Twister. That should be a laugh

Christmas Eve is the is the main day for the French celebrations and in the evening is when they have their main meal to celebrate.

In some households the meal starts in the evening, there is then a break for midnight mass before going back home for more food.
