Thanksgiving is usually a time when families come together to enjoy their day. Many conversations are had and enjoyed by all. Some families may have conversations that shouldn't be brought up.
Politics are never a good thing to talk about during thanksgiving dinner. Realize and accept that everyone has different thoughts about politics, and everyone thinks they are right. Don't bring it up, and if the conversation comes up, end it.
Never discuss what people have coming to them due to the death of a family member. This will bring up bad ideas, thoughts, or greed. Many people are greedy and think they should get certain items. This is one huge issue among families when people die. The living turn into vultures and fight for physical items or money. Never bring this up at the Thanksgiving dinner table.
If you have die hard sports fans at the table, you could cause a lively debate. Sports debates could get the potatoes flinging, and everyone covered in gravy.
Don't ever bring up about how you spent Thanksgiving with so and so one year and they did x, y, and z. This could stir up some bad emotions, if you slightly hint that you had more fun, or the food was better, don't bother!
Does the past of your family haunt you or people around you?! Don't bring up the past about when someone was drunk, or dated so and so especially if it's about someone at dinner. This could cause a lot of bad memories for that person, and something you should avoid.
Don't make this Thanksgiving your next family debate. You know your family, so if it's a topic that is a debatable topic, don't bring it up! Talk about the weather.
I made the mistake of bringing up my OWN will at a thanksgiving dinner some years ago - boy, that'll get you in a pickle!
Great tips! Thank you!

Here Here! Let's keep the potatoes in the bowl and the cranberry sauce on our plates. =)) Great front page.
These are great things not to discuss at The Thanksgiving Dinner. I fully agree and will avoid them at my celebration meal table.
Ha ha, too true! Thankful talk works best. :)
That's hilarious! Love.
Super list. I wish I could send this as an anonymous link to a few family members. ;-)
I think I need to print this list and place a copy at each place setting!
Great list. Thanks and please pass the cranberry sauce!
