Christmas Day activities in St. Julian's

My family and I are quite excited to be going to Malta for Christmas this year. We are quite aware that businesses close down on Christmas but I am wondering if everything will be completely closed down. Are there shows or fun things to do on Christmas Day? I've tried to google but not much is coming up.

Thank you in advance.

On Christmas Day Outside of the hotels it is very quiet, a although some bars are open. One Christmas Day we went 10 Pin Bowling followed by dinner at Hard Rock Cafe both in Paceville part of St Julians which was an enjoyable family afternoon.

A lot of restaurants will be open,but booking is advisable as get booked up fast,as a lot of Maltese eat out on Christmas day also,but as stated overall it quiet and hey then walk it off as a family.

Christmas Eve is always very lively with restaurants and bars packed .

During the day Valletta gets very busy with shoppers etc.

On Christmas Day there are often local bands playing round the streets ..
