Some families like to meet at home for Christmas.

Others just like to go to the movies or eat with the family without worrying about washing up.

If that’s your thing, this list is for you.

In this photo, taken on Wednesday, July 14, 2010, Christmas displays are displayed in a workroom in the Lord and Taylor flagship store on Fifth Aveune, New York.  The department store chain, benefiting from a makeover, has not seen a slowdown in sales, but has contingency plans in place in the event that business slows over the Christmas season.
