Thanks to Christmas Day falling on a Sunday this year, today is a legal holiday, and that means things are quiet in Los Angeles, with many offices and services closed or limited.

Government offices, courts, schools, libraries, banks and post offices will be closed today, and there is no trash collection by city crews in L.A. Residents whose trash is normally collected on Monday will have it picked up the following day, notes City News Service.

If you need to get around town on public transportation, be advised Metro is operating buses and trains on a Sunday schedule, and some bus lines will not be running. Only two Metrolink lines are running today: Limited holiday service will be offered on the Antelope Valley and San Bernardino lines, on a Sunday schedule.

You'll likely find the bigger chain stores open for business today, if you have more shopping to do or want to trade in what you got that you didn't like. You may, however, want to give a call to your favorite independent shops and restaurants before heading out, just in case they've opted to take the day off. Enjoy your Boxing Day!
