I was surprised to learn how many of us were looking for something else to talk about during our holiday meal besides everyone’s latest medical procedure and what family feuds are alive and well as a result of last month’s post Thanksgiving Table Talk. For this year’s Christmas dinner, you already have the great food and great company planned – to make a perfect trio, following are some suggestions for great (and potentially humorous) Christmas dinner conversation!
One idea is to to write questions on festive cards, put them in a jar and pass the jar around the dinner table, taking turns drawing a card and asking a surprise question. There are numerous places to get inspired for question topics. Following are some links to explore topic lists that you can use as-is, modify to Christmas-fy, or use to generate ideas perfect for a particular holiday group.
Another fun delivery of questions to the Christmas diners, is a spin-the-wheel format. Here’s a link to realsimple.com that shows you how to make the wheel as well as provides some topics. A simple craft project to engage the kids prior to dinner is a fun bonus!

This great list of questions to bring generations together from AARP deserves an encore performance!
Remember the great ideas last month from the fun skiptomylou.com? Not only can those suggestions be adapted to Christmas themes, but the site has 3 more conversation-starting card sets that are all ready to go for you last-minuters who want the questions drafted AND the cards already decorated!
Whether you draw your questions from a jar, have one at each place setting, have an official question reader, or spin-the-wheel to see what the question will be, this Christmas dinner will be full of good chat and laughter!
