It's almost the holiday season, which means many people will be spending more time with family. It's a great thing, really: Seeing your loved ones, eating amazing food (seriously this turkey recipe has us drooling), and spending time together are all things to look forward to. But family reunions also have a way of trudging up touchy conversations you've been avoiding since last winter.

Don't get us wrong: We're all for healthy debate, and there are ways to confront difficult or divisive issues without merely changing the topic (let's be honest, sometimes you should tough it out and have those discussions). But some convos just don't pair well with marshmallow yams. If you know certain topics open up Pandora's box with your family (Politics! Bad family news! That boyfriend everyone hates!), you may want to prep in advance to skillfully dodge them and keep the holiday cheer alive.

Allow us to recommend some other things you and your fam can chat about over pumpkin pie and wine. Shall we?
