November is the time of the year when Americans are encouraged to put emphasis on the aspects of their life that they are grateful for. Seen as the ‘kick-off of the holiday season,’ Thanksgiving is the time to reconnect with loved ones, celebrate over food and enjoy the company of one-another. Not everyone is a connoisseur of small talk, though, and many may find the mingling that comes along with reuniting to be stressful. Whether you don’t have anything in common with your elderly uncle or you need to break the ice with your new significant other’s family, we searched the internet to bring you the best Thanksgiving table talk of 2017.
1.) Light Hearted ‘What-ifs’- Asking ‘what if’ to start a conversation can be utilized for any topic! For example: What if a couple at the dinner table never met by running into each other in a cafe? What if America celebrated Thanksgiving by eating traditional Thanksgiving food, such as pumpkin pie that was literally made inside of a pumpkin? The options are endless!
2.) Family Tradition Talk- We all have that one tradition that is unique to your family. But what about the unspoken traditions? For example, if grandma didn’t make her famous apple pie for dessert, there would be an uproar from all sides of the family. Discussing the traditions that have created themselves can lead to a whimsical discussion of past traditions and old memories.
3.) Current Events- An engaging topic if you approach it correctly. Current events that are free of religion and politics are easy to come by than you may think! Check out this list of strange, funny and interesting news for some unbias, clean-cut articles that will have your family laughing and scratching their heads.
4.) Would You Rather- A true classic that can be used even after the middle school slumber party years of your life. A simple question of ‘Would you rather finish all the mashed potatoes, or eat an entire pie?’ can create a domino effect of questions that will keep the conversation fun for the whole family.
