Christmas will look a little different this year: Santa is still coming to town, but is practicing social-distancing, and his elves are hard at work—wearing masks and staying six feet apart. There will still be cookie decorating and plenty of holiday lights, but in limited numbers and in a more cautious way. If you'd like to join in the fun, these 20 places are offering a host of responsible and inventive ways to have a memorable white Christmas.
