There are only a few menu items at McDonald’s that we just want. It doesn’t matter what day it is, whether it’s a holiday, or even what time it is. Chicken nuggets? Yes please. A Big Mac with fries? Sure! An Oreo McFlurry? Well, that all depends on the ice machine.
But what happens when the holidays come and shops and restaurants close to let their employees celebrate the family? What about cravings for nuggets and chips?
The big question to ask, other than whether we can get extra honey mustard and ketchup, is whether McDonald’s is really open on Thanksgiving Day.

One of the things to watch out for are the opening times. Since about 95 percent of McDonald’s locations are franchises, their hours of operation will vary across the board. This means that your nearest restaurant may close earlier than you are used to.
