You might already be anticipating the wads of Christmas money Santa will bring you this year.
Or perhaps you just have to keep on top of your bills even as the festivities happen around you.
Regardless of why, many of us might need to pop to the bank this Christmas time.
Are banks open over Christmas?
Are banks open on Christmas Eve?
As Christmas Eve falls on a Thursday this year – and is not a bank holiday – banks will be open.
However, it’s likely that many banks will close early for the holiday.
It’s best to check with your bank and local branches to see what time they’ll be closing this Christmas Eve if you have to do any urgent banking before a long stretch of weekend days and bank holidays over the festive period.

Are Banks open on Christmas Day?
Banks will be closed on Christmas Day.
If you need to withdraw cash, you can still use a cash machine.
Similarly, you’ll be able to pay using online banking, but payments and deposits might take longer to process.
Are Banks open the day after Christmas?
As Christmas falls on a Friday this year, banks will be open their regular shorter Saturday hours the following day.
The Boxing Day bank holiday has instead been moved to Monday, December 28.
That means, depending on your branch, you’ll be able to get some banking done in the morning of Saturday, December 26.
However, you’ll have fewer hours to do your banking as most banks close sometime between noon and 2pm on Saturdays.
