Hey Everyone, For those of us in America, Thanksgiving recently brought many families together for food, fun, and conversation. I love seeing my relatives, but (like many other families) the conversation always drifts into political discourse at some point in the day. A discussion of opposing views is all well and good, but I was relieved when we steered towards casual jokes, job stories, minor philosophizing, and otherwise less friction-prone topics. Now I'm curious. What are some non-political discussion topics other people have had with family (Thanksgiving or otherwise) that seem good ways to get everyone relaxed and just enjoying being around each other? Christmas is coming soon, and more family table talk will be needed!
