Christmas dinners are likely to be a little different this year, and with smaller gatherings advised, many cooks are having to adjust their usual bountiful menus to serve fewer people.

It’s difficult to adjust the way a dish has been made for years or decades, though, and many of us will wake up on Saturday with enough leftovers to revive the British custom of Boxing Day.

I've wondered why they call it Boxing Day. Now I know. Christmas dinner, like Thanksgiving this year, will be supplied mostly by our favorite restaurants. I think this is going to be our new tradition.
