Warwick, RI — The wrapping paper is cleared, gifts are presented and stockings emptied —  Christmas is finally here, but what’s open and closed

The winter holiday, like many in Western tradition, started a while ago, with one written account dated 354 and describing an early Christian feast in honor of Jesus’s birth. Hanukkah also just concluded, the solstice is recently past, and winter is officially in — so whatever your practice, enjoy the day and look forward to brighter days, literally.

In Warwick, city hall and the school department are closed for the holiday, with schools also closed and through next week. Trash and recycling are delayed one day.

Public transit company RIPTA is following holiday routes on Thursday. Check the RIPTA website for schedules.

TF Green State Airport is operating, with arrival and departure schedules online.

Banks are also closed.
