For those wondering, 'is Walmart open Christmas Day?,' the answer is no.

Walmart, along with most other major retailers, closed its doors last night, Dec. 24, 2009, and will reopen tomorrow morning, Dec. 26.

Rumors today are rampant that Walmart is open, fueled by an error-filled blog post making that claim and ranking high in Google search results.

That same blog post claims K-Mart and Best Buy are also open, which is not true. These retail stores are closed today for Christmas Day 2009, along with Target and many others.

Many other bloggers followed suit stating that Walmart is open today, even though it is not, citing that original (incorrect) post as a source. This added to the confusion today online and helped the rumor spread even further.

Other sites are also weighing in, some posting places that are open Christmas Day.
