The Raptors are finally playing on Christmas Day and Toronto fans rejoice
While most of us are dreading the end of summer, there's a good chance Raptors fans already can't wait for Christmas.
Why? Because it was just announced that the reigning team will be playing on Christmas Day.

Boston at Toronto
NBA games on Christmas Day are extremely prestigious, and it's only the second time the Raptors have been given the honour.
The last time the Raptors were given such a show of respect by the league was in 2001 against the New York Knicks.
To say Raptors fans are excited about the announcement would be an understatement.

It only took winning a championship to get here, but either way, it's a big deal for the Raptors and Toronto is proud.
