Yippie! It’s Thanksgiving week! I love Thanksgiving. We get to be together as a family, lots of us, and all of that delicious food. Plus, the place I work, JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts, is closed, so I don’t have to spend time away from my family. That makes me really happy too. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
The thing I want to talk to you about today is conversation starters for your Thanksgiving meal. Here’s why I think this is important. My family, whom I love beyond measure, has a lot of the same conversations every year. Seriously. I have heard the same hunting stories at least ten times.
I don’t usually host Thanksgiving. That is my mother-in-law’s thing to do and that is perfectly fine. However, one year, for whatever reason, I hosted and I decided that I would try something different. I put a cute bowl in the middle of our table and filled it with other things we could talk about. It was a success! We still had a few hunting talks, man those guys can get off topic easily, but we were able to include everyone in the conversation. It was great!
In the event that you have a similar issue at your Thanksgiving table, or really at any meal, I’m providing you with some ideas for your conversation. I hope it helps.
