Getting together with family for Thanksgiving can definitely be a stressful time for some people. All those extended relatives in one place, with differing opinions, are bound to set off a few fights so most people tend to be careful of what they say, what subjects they bring up, and most importantly what questions they’ll ask of certain people.
If you fall into that category you may stick to innocent topics like the weather, but thanks to the Huffington Post you no longer have to. The site has just come out with a list of 35 questions they suggest will promote thoughtful discussion over the holidays, without setting off any major battles amongst family members.
