What to talk about at the dinner table this Thanksgiving (instead of politics)


The 2016 campaign season is over but that doesn’t mean we have seen the end of political conversations. If you think an unwanted political conversation could spoil your Turkey Day, KRQE News 13 has you covered. We have compiled a list of “safe” topics to keep the conversation going and avoid any Thanksgiving drama.

Topic idea #1: Larry Barker’s latest investigation on the Negligence Files. In Barker’s latest investigation you will learn about a government agency that is so secret even the governor is kept in the dark. But just because you don’t know what is going on there, doesn’t mean it isn’t costing you big time. Watch Larry’s latest investigation here » 

Topic idea #2: KRQE News 13’s Dean Staley sat down with former priest Antonio Trujillo to talk about how he made the decision to leave the priesthood and ultimately ended up finding his true calling. This story can surely lead to some heartwarming table talk. You can watch the full story here »

Topic idea #3: Thanksgiving and Football have become synonymous so avoid the government gab and talk about what is going on the gridiron. With plenty of games set for Thanksgiving day, you should have plenty to talk about. Find out which games are airing and what else to watch this weekend here »

Topic idea #4: After your done eating your delicious Turkey Day feast you should probably take a little break – a Brain Break that is. Take our Thanksgiving Day Trivia quiz and challenge your family for bragging rights.

Topic idea #5: If you are looking for a feel-good topic, the story is just what the doctor ordered. A new cafe in Albuquerque does not have prices on its menu and if you visit you could eat for free if you want. The Food Karma cafe’s concept is people taking “care of each other” and operates on a “pay as you feel” business model. Read the full story on the Food Karma Cafe here »
