Christmas is one of the most celebrated holidays in the world — and many people like to start the fun a day early. But before the merriment can begin, a number of items must be crossed off the to-do list, such as grocery shopping, picking up last-minute gifts and going to the bank.

While bustling along trying to accomplish everything, many people ask the questions, “What is open on Christmas Eve” and “Are banks open on Christmas Eve?” In most cases, the answer to the second question is yes.

Do Banks Open on Christmas Eve 2015?

Unlike Christmas Day, Christmas Eve is not one of the 10 holidays recognized by the Federal Reserve System. So, most financial institutions are open.

However, many bank hours on Christmas Eve are often limited, as many close early to allow their employees to get an early start on the holiday. If you plan to visit your bank or credit union on Christmas Eve, it’s a good idea to call your local branch first to check its holiday hours.

U.S. Bank, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Other Banks Open on Christmas Eve

Many customers want to know if banks are open on Christmas Eve. As noted above, several banks are indeed open on Christmas Eve. Holiday hours have already been set at most banks, but some have yet to confirm their operating schedules.

For example, Chase Bank hasn’t yet verified to GOBankingRates if it will be open on Christmas Eve or if it will have adjusted hours, so contact your local branch for more information.
