Five Ways to Change the Conversation at the Thanksgiving Table

By November 24, 2011Communications

Thanksgiving, a time for turkey, pie and family gatherings. If you’re sharing a table with family today there’s sure to be some awkward conversations. We’re all SUPPOSED to know to avoid the topics of religion and politics but if you find yourself in some sticky discussions, here are some starters to get you gracefully out of what could become a tense turkey day moment.

  1. Is there bourbon in this pie?
  2. Who likes bacon?
  3. Are there any good sales tomorrow?
  4. I’m thankful that Ashton Kutcher’s going to be back on the market. What divorcing celebrity are you thankful for?
  5. How’s (the relative who isn’t present) doing, anyway?

Good luck, and happy Thanksgiving!
