It's Thanksgiving. It's time to make peace, or at least pretend to get along with family members you're not on good terms with. Here are some topics to avoid:
- Politics – Nothing will start an argument at the table faster than a discussion about politics. If someone insists on bringing it up, do your best to steer the conversation in another direction. Whatever you do, don’t engage.
- Religion – Never good table talk. Hold the preaching and pass the pumpkin pie.
- Family scandals – The Thanksgiving table is not the place to gossip about why cousin Amy is leaving her husband.
- How much someone is eating – Uncle Earl may be on his fifth helping of mashed potatoes, but you don’t need to bring it up or talk about how big he is getting.
- How bad the food is – The green bean casserole may taste like dirt, but Aunt Edna’s feelings will still be hurt.
- Dietary preferences – If your sister doesn’t eat gluten, don’t give her a hard time or pester her to eat just one roll.
- Better Thanksgivings in the past – Try and enjoy the moment and live in the present. (MSN)
