How to Avoid Fights at Thanksgiving Dinner


Thanksgiving is right around the corner. In less than two weeks, Americans nationwide will be gathering with relatives and other loved ones they may not have seen in some time to celebrate the holiday.

This typically involves everyone sitting down at the dinner table for a big feast. People serve and enjoy turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, and other dishes; however, in light of all that’s happening in the world, it’s not hard for loved ones to find themselves on opposite sides of controversial matters.

Regardless, we can all still enjoy a friendly Thanksgiving dinner without exchanging harsh words.

Approach differences of opinions from a healthy place

No one agrees on every issue, including people who love one another. Whether it’s the war between Israel and Hamas, the 2024 presidential election, COVID-19, etc., not all opinions will align.

Therefore, if and when opposing thoughts come up during Thanksgiving dinner, people shouldn’t assume the contrasting view is emerging from a place of malice. These days, folks turn to different media outlets and platforms to get their news. Furthermore, people tend to look at various matters through their own unique lenses.
