Chick-fil-A opens Sunday to feed stranded at Atlanta airport travelers

Chick-fil-A broke a hallowed tradition, but this isn't the first time they've broken their own rules to help others.

ATLANTA – Some on social media are calling it a Christmas miracle, but to those from Georgia it is no surprise.

On Sunday during the blackout at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A did what it always does: they showed up to help.

While it is notoriously known for being closed on Sunday, the fast-food giant turned on their fryers and delivered thousands of beloved chicken sandwiches to the stranded travelers at the airport.

Chick-fil-A provided 2,000 meals to travelers as of midnight, according to Mayor Kasim Reed.
