NEWPORT BEACH, CA — Christmas Day is likely to look different in 2020 as millions of Americans opt to stay home, marking the holiday with smaller celebrations amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Still, smaller celebrations, however, don’t necessarily mean we’ll bypass holiday traditions. No matter how hard we try, sometimes the elves forget to put in the batteries, and there's always that last little gift you need before dinner time!

And when it comes to Christmas dinner, a pandemic is certainly unlikely to stop us from forgetting that one key ingredient needed to make a perfect holiday meal.
