Why is there a gap between the election and the presidential nomination?

The election was held on November 3, 2020, but Mr. Biden did not officially become president until more than two months later.

Until 1933, the new president was inaugurated on March 4, four months after election day. This period was then reduced to approximately two months with the ratification of the 20th Amendment.
