ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Instead of turkey, some of you enjoyed pancakes or steak for Christmas dinner.

Workers at IHOP in Lee County say it's a tradition for many families to come and have breakfast or lunch at the restaurant on Christmas day.

They also see lots of military members and people who are traveling. When we dropped by today, the restaurant was crowded.

We talked with one worker who's been serving up pancakes every Christmas at IHOP for the past five years.

"We just get people that stay here, in the Albany and the Terrell County area, we have a lot of regulars that come in every year, its just tradition that they come in and eat breakfast at IHOP every Christmas morning," says Terry Young.

Terry Young says Christmas is actually one of their busiest days of the year. They normally serve about twice as many customers as a regular day.
