Maybe you're cooking a Christmas feast and realize you're missing one ingredient for your signature eggnog. Perhaps you're needing to pick up a last-minute gift for an unexpected guest showing up to Christmas brunch. Or possibly, you're just looking to do some much-needed retail therapy on your day off. Regardless of what you're planning on December 25, you may be wondering: Is Walmart open on Christmas Day? After all, you can buy gifts, household products, groceries and even alcohol all in one place when you shop at Walmart.

But as you may know, many stores close for the holidays (including Costco, Wegman's and The Home Depot), and for Christmas Day 2021, Walmart is no exception.
