Ever Wonder What Jews do on Christmas?

In reality, what do Jews do on Christmas Day, an often obligatory day off work whether one really wants to take the day off or not, or a day to enjoy with friends and family because one can? Movies and Chinese food may be stereotypical but true, because these are often some of the only places actually open when seemingly the whole world shuts down for 24 hours.  Often it is a time with friends and family, even non-Jewish friends and family, because one can still enjoy friendship and fellowship without the religious aspects associated with Christmas Day.
