This year more restaurants than ever seemed to be open for Thanksgiving. But Christmas is still Christmas, and most places are closed on Dec. 25. Yes, many Chinese and Indian restaurants remain open on Christmas Day. But I always thought the annual Christmas Day dinner in a Chinese restaurant was one of those customs more honored in the breach than the observance. At least around here. Below are the handful of Christmas Day options I have found so far. Anything else I learn of will be posted on Dining@Large ( baltimoresun.com/diningatlarge )

Turkey, homemade brownies and a piece of fresh fruit have been staples at Carpenter's Kitchen in Mount Vernon for nearly 25 years. They'll be on the menu one last time Saturday for Christmas dinner, the final meal for the weekly program that serves the city's needy. The program is one of the few in Baltimore that offers free hot meals on Saturday nights when many soup kitchens are closed, and has seen its regulars increase to nearly 300 in tough economic times. But Carpenter's Kitchen in the basement of Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church, is having economic problems of its own. Organizers say they're reluctantly shutting it down, citing a steady, long-term decline in church contributions.

Owners of local restaurants offering Christmas dinner say that business has been growing each year as customers decide to stay out of the kitchen on the big day.Still, there aren't many that will be open, so call early to make reservations. From my somewhat random survey, your best bet is hotel restaurants. Country inns and Chinese restaurants run a close second.To give you some idea of what's out there, here are a few I found:Antrim 1844 in Taneytown plans a holiday buffet for $50 a person.

The Bible tells how Jesus fed thousands of people with just a few fish and loaves of bread. The story is meant to show Jesus' miracle-making power, and also to teach a fundamental lesson in compassion. The Rev. Henry B. Hunt and members of Mount Hebron Memorial Church of God in Christ have taken that moral to heart. Yesterday, as they have done for nine years, the church members opened the doors of Heaven's Gate Eatery, a church subsidiary, offering a free sit-down Christmas dinner for anyone who wanted to come.

On Thanksgiving, I make four kinds of pie, at least two kinds of bread and several batches of homemade croissants, plain and chocolate. For New Year's, it's rib roast and Yorkshire pudding. I even do it up for the 4th of July with a blueberry, strawberry and pastry cream tart shaped like an American flag. But when it comes to Christmas, I settle for nothing but meatloaf. It was not always this way. When I was very young, Christmas dinner was always at my grandmother's house, and meatloaf was nowhere to be found.

AFTER CHRISTMAS dinner, my grandmother sings Lithuanian folk songs. The adults, meanwhile, sip ''virytos,'' an amber-colored Lithuanian beverage. One literally sips virytos since in addition to honey, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg, virytos contains 190-proof grain alcohol. My grandmother's hands rest lightly on the table; a small glass of virytos is beside them.Her voice is plaintive. The look on her face reminds me of sunlight coming through the living-room window. Her songs tell of ''Lietuva,'' Lithuania, a country on the Baltic sea between Poland, Latvia and Russia.

Here's what we know right now about Christmas Day. With the exception of Joey Chiu's in Lutherville, most of the restaurants that were open last year are again.

Off to a good start, with the cleaning in preparation for Kathleen's family's descent upon us this afternoon, accompanied by the lessons and carols from King's College on the radio. Kathleen and J.P. are finishing up the tapas for late afternoon and the Ukrainian holy supper afterward (mushroom soup, sauerkraut and barley, four or five species of pierogi). Alice is on her way over, and I have the wine chilling. Kathleen, of course, is obligated later for the Christmas pageant at Trinity, Towson, and in gratitude for my absence from all such involvements I will later pour myself a second glass of wine.

Thanksgiving may be all about food (and football), but Christmas has myriad elements besides the Roast Beast. Gift presentations and all that oohing and aahing, to be more precise. Growing up, we had a turkey dinner on both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am not allowed to repeat that tradition. For Dec. 25, "they" want an entirely different menu, and usually something different every year. Serves me right. I created these monsters, albeit adorable ones. My mother used to call it being "hoisted on your own petard.

A golden retriever named "Jazzy" is back with her family after a Christmas Day escape. Andi Vanko says on Christmas Day she was in the car with her boyfriend and mom when she saw the dog dash out into traffic on a Carroll County road. The group rescued the dog and continued driving to Vanko's sister's house where they were having Christmas dinner. The family found a tag on the dog that said "GRREAT," an acronym for Golden Retriever Rescue Education And Training. A call to the organization turned up the dog's owners in a database.

Just for Christmas, we'll step out of the moderate price category to recommend a special wine for a gift or Christmas dinner. This red Rhone wine is a classic of its kind -- an exceptionally intense wine with flavors of black pepper, blackberry, roast meats, herbs and those indefinably warm earthy flavors you only find in the Rhone. For all its robustness and aging potential, it's supple enough to enjoy young. Go on, splurge.
