Thanksgiving is upon us once again! As you gather around the Thanksgiving table with family, we all know it can be difficult to spark interesting conversation, especially with family you see infrequently. Instead of picking up your phones in a dull moment, be prepared with questions to break the silence and keep the meaningful conversation going. 

Our tip: Screenshot this article on your phone, and when all goes scarily silent, whip out a question that will have people engaged and included during your Thanksgiving holiday!
