You’ve cleaned up the mess (how does wrapping paper always get everywhere?) and now it’s time to decide what to do with another day off.

You could see a movie (but that’s probably what everyone else is thinking), or maybe shopping the sales could be a good option; beware that both are very stress-inducing.

We think the correct play here is to seek out one of the spots on this guide (definitely call ahead to see if they have any room), and settle in for a nice, long, leisurely lunch or dinner. Let someone else handle the cooking today – you can always have those Christmas leftovers tomorrow.
