Use these free Thanksgiving conversation starters to have a lively and fun discussion with family members during Thanksgiving dinner, after at the Thanksgiving table, or anytime during Thanksgiving day. You can choose from twelve different conversation starters or take one at a time and use them all.
A perfect time to use these conversation starter questions is after dinner but before the pumpkin pie. You know when everyone is still sitting around the Thanksgiving dinner table ready to have a good conversation.
You know what they say: you want to stay away from religion or politics at the extended family dinner table. I suspect those two subjects may be staples at some dinner tables, but if you know there is the possibility of sparking disagreements that will not end well, then stick to the conversation starters below. They are light and fun and hopefully will not end in any hard feelings. Instead of awkward silence, they will result in meaningful discussions with your close friends and family members.
So on to the Thanksgiving conversation starters. You can even download a pdf and print it out with all of them on one sheet for handy reference. Another fun way to use this pdf is to cut out each of the squares with the conversation starters to make Thanksgiving conversation starter cards, then mix them up. Place them face down in a pile and have each person pick one like a card. Each of the dinner guests will then answer the conversation starter question that they have picked.
You can then save them for next year and reuse them again to enhance your Thanksgiving conversations each year. You can even add new questions as you think of them to mix things up.
