Need that last minute gift, a refill on your blood pressure meds, or just aren’t into that whole Christmas thing and want to know what’s open and closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day?

You can always pop over to one of South Florida’s kosher markets or delis like Kosher Kingdom in Aventura, KosherLand in Surfside, Lots of Lox in Palmetto Bay or Mo’s Bagels & Deli in Aventura for a schmear or smoked whitefish.

You know those delis and many other eateries will be open.
