A family having a Christmas Eve dinner over Zoom is struggling to figure out how to pass the potatoes, with participants on laptops not having physical arms at the dinner table.

The idea to have a Zoom Christmas Eve dinner seemed to make sense for safety, but it hasn’t worked out in practicality. No one has been able to eat the food placed in front of their laptops, and many have talked over each other while trying to figure out how to have a virtual dinner and holiday celebration.

It’s unclear how dinner and the laptops were set up to begin with with no one present at the physical location.
