An Alternative Meal to the Traditional Christmas Dinner

BANGOR - Christmas day means a lot of good food, but it doesn't always have to be homemade.
While many people do stay home for the traditional Christmas meal, others chose to dine out. Picking some of their own favorite restaurants in Bangor that were still open today.  Enjoying a less traditional, but still very filling meal with family and friends.
They say it is better than having to cook and clean a whole meal, and that afterwards they still get together at someones home for dessert, play games, and be merry.
Happy China Buffet, Dysart's, and Oriental Jade, as well as some other Bangor favorites, were all open today serving hungry customers.
