Tips for Great Thanksgiving Dinner Table Conversations

Here are some easy tips to ensure the conversation keeps going and that your Thanksgiving conversations are as good as the food.

  1. Avoid topics that could lead to emotionally charged conversations, especially if your dinner guests are not close family members. Politics and religion are the two most obvious conversation killers, but other topics like parenting styles and money could also dampen the mood.
  2. Be inclusive. If you notice that some of your guests are more quiet, make it a point to ask them questions to get them talking. Even shy people are more comfortable answering questions, rather than trying to lead a conversation.
  3. Be prepared for the lulls in conversation. This is where the free printable Thanksgiving conversation cards come in handy! Grab the stack of cards and have someone choose one to get the conversation going again

Ask about how their kids are enjoying the school year, or if they have any big plans for Christmas. Even shy people are more comfortable answering questions, rather than trying to lead a conversation.
  3. Don’t ONLY talk about yourself. Be sure to ask questions of others also, rather than only talking about what is going on in your own life.
  4. Be prepared for the lulls in conversation. This is where the free printable Thanksgiving conversation cards come in handy! If you sense that the talking is starting to fizzle out, grab the stack of cards and have someone choose one to get the conversation going again.
