Santa's Magical Kingdom

Many of the Christmas light displays in St. Louis are closed on Christmas, but not Santa's Magical Kingdom. The lights will be twinkling in Jellystone Park in Eureka from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. You can drive your car through the display or take a wagon ride. Santa Claus himself will also be there to greet the kids.

Steinberg Skating Rink

After getting your fill of Christmas dinner, head over to Steinberg Skating Rink in Forest Park to work off some of those calories. The ice rink is open extended hours from 10 a.m. to midnight December 16 - January 1, including Christmas Day. Skating fees are $6.50 for adults and $5.50 for children. Skates are also available to rent for $3.

Hidden Valley Ski Resort

Another way to work off those Christmas calories is with a little skiing or snowboarding. Hidden Valley Ski Resort is open for a special moonlight ski session on Christmas night from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Movie Theatres

Christmas night is a popular time to go to the movies. After a big meal, sometimes it's best to just sit for a while. St. Louis area theaters, including AMC and Wehrenberg, are open on Christmas Day.


Poker, Blackjack, Slots. Whatever your game, you can play it on Christmas. Local casinos including Lumiere Place, Harrah's and Ameristar are open for anyone wanting to try their luck.


Walgreens is always very busy on Christmas Day. It's the one place you can go if you run out of toilet paper or Tylenol (other than a gas station).
