It’s not uncommon at all if someone wants a drink or two during the holidays, and with just a few days left until Christmas, there is no doubt that alcohol for the adults while kids run around and open presents hasn’t crossed your mind. But it would be in our best interest to warn you, ladies and gentlemen, that a different approach has taken place in alcohol sales on Christmas Day as of recently. According to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, reportedly 24 states have banned the sale and transport of alcohol on Christmas. Curious? Well, here’s what we know:

  • One-third of counties in the state of Georgia have banned alcohol sales on Christmas Day
  • Mississippi will only allow customers to buy booze with an alcohol volume less than or the equivalent of 5%.
  • Liquor stores in North Carolina will close at 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve, and grocery stores will be the only places selling alcohol.
  • Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina, Ohio, and New York have banned all sales and transports of alcohol on Christmas Day.
