The whānau might already have a Christmas feast game plan ready to go, but there's always that chance of a last-minute kitchen disaster – eyeing you out, aunty.
Or maybe you're just gunning to dodge the whole cooking stress altogether! No judgment here, we all want that extra time with our loved ones.
Well, now there’s no need to stress about a plan B 'cause Santa, ahem, the Colonel, has sussed it, and KFC will be dishing out their fried chook all day.

Only some KFC stores will be open on December 25, with special holiday hours to sort you and your crew out with their 11 secret herbs and spices.
From 10 am to 8 pm, you can roll through the drive-thru or head into the store to snag your chicken fix.
Here's where you can get some fried chook this Christmas:
UPPER NORTH ISLAND
- New Lynn
- Lincoln Road
- Quay Street
- Botany Downs
- Mangere Central
- Auckland International Terminal Airport
LOWER NORTH ISLAND
- Hastings – Drive Thru Only
- Lower Hutt – Drive Thru Only
And if you're thinking about getting a fried feast on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day, or New Year's Eve, why not roll with all three? All KFC NZ stores are business as usual.
So, what's your choice meal? I get it's the season of giving, but I'm for sure eyeing up a bucket of wicked wings to keep all to myself this Christmas.
