NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Forgot a key ingredient for Christmas dinner? Need some aspirin? How about breakfast? You can get it all on Christmas Day.

Walgreens stores that are normally open 24 hours, will be open on Christmas Day. The Walgreens on White Bridge Road does a booming business on Christmas Day. Store Manager Sandy Young said people are very grateful that the store is open.

"We get a lot of people filtering in on Christmas Day. This is one of the busiest locations on Christmas. People buy last-minute gifts, grocery items are big. Preparing dinner on Christmas Day, no where else to go, they come here," said Young.

At the Waffle House on White Bridge Road, having a hearty Christmas breakfast has become a tradition for a lot of people. Manager Blake Duncan says Christmas Day is one of the busiest of the year.

"We get people come in eat breakfast, and wish us a Merry Christmas. It's one of the busiest days, volume wise," said Duncan.

The people who work the stores on Christmas Day also notice customer's attitudes change

"Everybody is a little bit different. They are happier, a little easier. They come in cause they need something. When you can help them find it, 'oh my God,' that's awesome," said Young.
