However, in a first-of its kind, Christmas 2020 will be very different in every aspect this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With COVID norms like social distancing and travel restrictions in place, it is likely that one has to celebrate this Christmas on a low-key basis.

Malls have also evinced great creativity through decorations where young and old in masks can be seen taking pictures along with Christmas trees.
