Family and Politics...Not Always Easy Conversation.

Joining your family for Thanksgiving? It's safe to say that it will most likely be tempting to bring up politics. Obviously it has been a bit of a rough political season this year. Such an intense time has the possibility of making family Thanksgiving a bit awkward and uncomfortable. It may be safest to focus on a few other fun topics to keep the atmosphere light and happy this Thanksgiving Holiday. Here are a few just for the sake of a good time!

5. Stranger Things

It may seem like the fire for this show has died down a bit. But there’s no limit on the amount of conspiracy theories one could come up with for the Netflix Series that got everyone talking. Expectations for Season two are big and personally I hope they have a strong direction for the way they want to go because they’ve really set the bar pretty high! It will be exciting to see what comes next. Maybe ask your family what theories they have on the Upside Down?

4.Light TV

Roma Downey and Mark Burnett just announced that they will be launching a 24/7 Faith and Family Network. I am so excited about this! This duo has proved that they are capable of raising the bar with filmmaking and they conquer what they take on in just about every way. Personal opinion: this network is going be such a breath of fresh air in contrast to what is out on TV. The world could use a safe environment for the family audience once again. There seems to be a lot on TV lately that is much more suggestive than it used to be, so I'm looking forward to seeing a good, quality network that I can feel good about watching.

3. Football

If you're into that sort of thing, why not turn on the game and start cheering? Even if you are not into football, Thanksgiving is always a good day for it, it seems. Sports seems like a safe topic of conversation as guys always seems to know all the unnecessary information about each team and player. I've never fully comprehended that concept, but nonetheless, it can provide people with a good topic other than politics!

2. The Movie "Allied"

Personally, I am always up for a good movie. The World War 2 era is one that I never tire of, partly because it wasn't that long ago, and partly because it is such a strong part of history. The hook in this movie is hard to resist. A husband is instructed to kill his wife because the government has reason to believe that she is a German Spy. Robert Zemeckis, the director, is one of my favorites so I am super excited to see this movie! Could make for a good after-Thanksgiving-Nap Activity.

1. The Gilmore Girls Netflix Series Revival

Other than the series premiering the day after Thanksgiving, of-course there will be time to banter about the possible ways that Amy Sherman Palladino will finally end the show. Maybe even watch one of the Thanksgiving episodes! There isn't a bad episode of Gilmore Girls so really you could pick up on any one of them and just talk about the cultural references, there were quite a few of them as we all know. And if you have family that has not seen the show, it is a great time to encourage them to watch it.
