What Did You Talk About at Your Thanksgiving Table?

I'm sure a lot of Thanksgiving table conversations involved catching up, since many of us visited with friends and family we don't see that often. "How's you job?" "How was your Summer?" "How's your love life?" That can be fun, awkward, or both!

But once we know what's new, conversations can turn into engaging or heated discussions about politics, the economy, or the latest scandal in pop culture. Then again, maybe your family's like Don Draper and doesn't see the point of talking about politics, religion, or sex. What were the most popular topics of conversation around your Thanksgiving table yesterday?

My boyfriend and I recently moved out of state and celebrated Thanksgiving with just the two of us (and my animals, of course). It was wonderful because our meal was completely vegan (didn't have to smell a turkey or argue with my Mom about putting butter in the peas) and there were no crying or screaming kids. For the first time in 5 years, I was also able to have a hot and non-dry meal. Every year I've been a vegetarian, I've had to make my meal in advance and heat it up in the microwave. My Mom would always tell me we're about to eat, so I would heat my food up and 15 minutes later, people were still goofing off, not in place to pray. My bf and I talked about how quiet it was and how delicious the food was.

Oh, I thought you were much younger for some reason, underaged. I'm 24. It really does get fun when you have kids, with holidays and things, but you definitely can enjoy yourself now. Just positive thinking and planning and doing what makes you happy without regards to the unwilling people in your life.

MissSushi, yes, I'm 21, so I'm still considered young. I don't have my own family or anything yet, but I can't wait until I'm married with kids. Then I can give them the perfect Thanksgiving that I've always wanted.

We talked about amusing stories from the past. It was a nice evening and the food was great.Juice, that's the time when you say screw it and you make your own family and your own good times. No reason to bother dwelling on what/who isn't worth the emotion. I think you're younger though? so you have less access to that still, but it will come eventually. I cooked and ate alone until I had a group of friends to do it with, and then later my boyfriend who is now my husband. It was hard at first but definitely better in the long run then being with my miserable family. My family did change later.. 5 years after I moved away from them when I became an adult, but I relished the time i spent away making my own happiness.

There was only three of us this year so there wasn't much talking this year until my brother and sister-in-law stopped by after dinner. We spent the next few hours laughing at MLIA and trying to come up with stupid MLIA stories. It was fun.

Nothing. I had no "Thanksgiving table". I never have. In the past, when my family would do Thanksgiving dinners, it would consist of sitting on the couch, chairs, and the floor & eating off our laps. This year, there was no dinner. If there was, I wasn't invited. So how did I spend Thanksgiving? Alone in my room. Sad, I know.

Food (Oh, it was great), family who can't make it, healthcare debate (my hub suddenly brought up politics), immigration reform (another one brought from hub) and then Black Friday deals on washer-dryers LOL.

for some reason, adam lambert's performance on sunday was brought up and I had an argument with my sister who kept saying it was ok to show britney/madonna but not 2 men. My brother and I were outraged. We also spoke about christmas music and popular music. But mostly everyone had their own little conversations.
