How To Keep Peace At Your Thanksgiving Table

Uh-oh, it’s here again. The day we are supposed to use to give collective thanks for our blessings, but we fear that our Thanksgiving table will become a bloody battleground, not over who gets the wishbone, but between the left and right wings of the family. The fear of dysfunction is not imaginary. “Argumentation could be high, as there are so many points of contention, our porcupine politics have so many painful sticking points that just about everyone has something they feel is significant to complain about,” said Temple University psychologist Frank Farley, past president of the American Psychological Association. With feelings running hot, you might fear Uncle Harry using a drumstick to beat some sense into Cousin Roy, and Aunt Henrietta throwing the candied sweet potatoes at Niece Pearl. We can agree that Donald Trump is an unpresidential president, a disrupter who eschews decorum.
