Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year. It combines many things I love: family, great food, drinks, and football! Thanksgiving allows us to reconnect with our loved ones and reflect on what we all have to be grateful for.

One way to get the conversation is to do Table Topics around the Thanksgiving Table or have Thanksgiving Table Topics at your Toastmasters meeting.
