Is the stock market open on Christmas Eve and Christmas? Normally, the answer to that question is no-ish. That's because Christmas Eve is typically an early closure day for Wall Street, while both the stock and bond markets are closed for the entirety of Christmas Day.

However, Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday in 2023, while Christmas Day is on Monday. So market participants will be completely off on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
