BURGER loving Brits will still be able to get their hands on fast food favourites over the festive period.
McDonald's will still be serving over the Christmas holidays, but opening hours and availability depends on your location – so make sure you check ahead.
Christmas Day this year is on Saturday December 25, and Boxing Day is on Sunday December 26, but can you pick up a Big Mac on the big day? We reveal all.
Is McDonald's open on Boxing day?
Last year, the chain opened a number of locations later than usual on Boxing Day, so staff and customers could get a well-deserved Christmas lay-in.
But the majority of stores were open for the day for Brits to get their fast-food fix to stave off the post-Christmas blues.
For this year, you'll have to double check the store locator to see the specific opening times for your local branch, as times will vary and they may be later than usual.
Use McDonald's restaurant locator tool to find the opening hours of your nearest branch.
Brits also get two extra bank holidays on December 27 and December 28 as Christmas and Boxing Day are at the weekend this year.
McDonald's is usually still open with regular trading hours on these days, but check ahead to save a wasted journey.

Will McDonald's deliver over Christmas?
Delivery services from McDonald's will depend on the opening hours of your local branch.
If your closest McDonald's is shut on Boxing Day or between certain hours, then you won't be able to get meals delivered from there.
If it is open on these days it's not guaranteed that delivery services will be running though, and you will have to check with the delivery provider of your choice closer to the time.
Companies such as JustEat and UberEats usually still deliver your McDonald's favourites over regular Bank Holiday weekends, so it's likely the services won't halt altogether over Christmas this year either.
Remember though, you have to factor in delivery fees when you order online, and these can usually add about £4 to your total bill.
Will there be any special festive promotions?
McDonald's fans can still enjoy the McDonalds Christmas menu on Boxing Day – but your time's running out to order.
The festive menu will end on December 28 as it only runs for six weeks.
Las year the chain gave away free carrot sticks – or “reindeer treats” – so kids could help feed Rudolph on Christmas eve.
And it did the same this year.
It also gave away 3,000 free navy-blue cross-stitch style sweaters, with a festive design including fries, Big Macs, snowflakes, carrots and reindeer antlers in the lead up to the festive season.
Was McDonald's open on Christmas Day?
McDonald's states in its online FAQs that "only a handful of restaurants open on Christmas Day".
Last year, McDonald's opened 33 of its total 1,300 restaurants on Christmas day.
The fast-food chain also closed some branches early on Christmas Eve to give staff time off.
Plus, Boxing Day saw a nationwide lie-in as the chain opened up branches a little later than usual.
A number of other retailers have already declared they're taking similar steps this year as Home Bargains, Marks & Spencer and Morrisons confirmed they will altogether close on Boxing Day to give staff a break.
