By and large, December 25th is not the best day to run errands. Many businesses will shut their doors on Christmas, but for those who want to go about their day as usual, there are a few spots that will remain open on the holiday.

DNAinfo New York has gathered a handful of those spots throughout the city, along with some reminders about how the holiday will affect some basic services:

► Christmas Day service changes

• Alternate side parking rules will be suspended on Christmas Day, as will parking meter regulations.

• Neither trash nor recycling will be collected on Christmas Day. DSNY recommends setting your garbage out after 4 p.m. that day, for collection the next morning.

• You should hold your recycling until the scheduled collection day the following week.

• Regular mail will not be delivered on Christmas Day, but will resume the day after.
