You probably already know that Chick-fil-A isn’t one of the fast-food restaurants open on Christmas. That’s because in addition to it being a big holiday, Dec. 25, 2022, falls on a Sunday … and as we know, Chick-fil-A is always closed on Sundays. But is Chick-fil-A open on Christmas Eve?

Yes, you’ll definitely be able to get a Christmas Eve order of Original Chicken Sandwiches or milkshakes, but you need to know when they’re going to be open. We’ll tell you everything we know about Chick-fil-A hours on Christmas Eve, how to get free Chick-fil-A on Christmas Eve, and even how to work the system so you can eat Chick-fil-A on Christmas.

Yes, Chick-fil-A is open on Christmas Eve. That means you can get all the best Chick-fil-A app deals on Dec. 24 and even pick up some Chick-fil-A secret menu items.

Chick-fil-A is officially planning to be open their regular hours, but since most Chick-fil-A locations are franchises, hours could differ from location to location.

Unfortunately, Chick-fil-A is closed on Christmas Day, but there are plenty of fast-food restaurants open on Christmas.


How can I get Chick-fil-A on Christmas?

While you can’t order Chick-fil-A on Christmas Day — because they’re closed — you have options. The easiest course of action is to order a larger platter of Chick-fil-A nuggets (64-count) beforehand for only $35.50. It’s one of the best family meal deals available, and they’re easy to reheat in an air fryer (or oven if you don’t have one).



What discounts can you get at Chick-fil-A?

The best way to get consistent discounts from Chick-fil-A is by joining the Chick-fil-A Rewards program. You’ll earn 10 points for every $1 spent through the rewards program, and you can use those points to earn free Chick-fil-A sandwiches, fries, and salads.

Plus, you’ll get occasional coupons sent to your account for free food. In the past, we’ve seen Chick-fil-A coupons for free breakfast sandwiches, milkshakes, and salads. It’s one of the best restaurant rewards programs.


Are there any exclusive Chick-fil-A menu items during Christmas?

When you visit Chick-fil-A from mid-November to early January, you’ll be able to get a Peppermint Milkshake, which will be priced at $4.95 this year.

This limited-edition milkshake combines vanilla and peppermint flavors. This milkshake comes back every year, so if you missed it this year, you’ll have to wait until late next year for it to return.

This isn’t the only limited-edition milkshake that Chick-fil-A came out with this year. In mid-September 2022, the Chick-fil-A Autumn Spice milkshake was released, which marks the third seasonal milkshake they’ve created (alongside the summer Peach Milkshake).

If you’re in the mood for holiday drinks, there are Starbucks holiday drinks, Dunkin’ holiday drinks, and more that you can try this season.


Is Chick-fil-A open on New Year’s Day and New Year’s Eve?

This year New Year’s Day lands on a Sunday, so Chick-fil-A will not be open on New Year’s Day. However, we can expect Chick-fil-A to be open on New Year’s Eve for regular hours. Make sure to check your local Chick-fil-A to confirm their hours.

After the holidays, we can expect Chick-fil-A to bring back the Chick-fil-A heart-shaped nugget trays to celebrate Valentine’s Day. One of the many heart-shaped foods you can get on Valentine’s Day.
