It’s hard to agree on anything these days, which will surely make sitting around the Thanksgiving table with your extended relatives who have different opinions than you rather difficult.

It’s natural to want to talk about President Donald Trump and the ongoing impeachment investigation as it’s been dominating national news headlines. With Trump’s constant Twitter feed and a 24/7 news cycle, it’s hard to escape talking about him.

If you want to have a World War III showdown at the Thanksgiving table this year, then by all means, do so. There’s nothing wrong with a healthy debate.

But if you’re trying to keep it kumbaya this year, here are some helpful topics for you and your family to discuss that won’t cause a major meltdown.


How can anyone fight over Lizzo? Her songs are amazing, she’s all about positivity and she always makes you feel good about yourself. It doesn’t matter if you’re listening to her music or watching her do a funny TV interview, Lizzo just radiates positivity and it’s a glorious thing to see.

Just keep “Good as Hell” on in the background during dinner on a constant loop and we guarantee the whole family will stay happy.
