It’s almost Black Friday’s Eve—or, as some of you may still remember it from the good ol’ days, Thanksgiving. Before you strap on those trusty Thanksgiving pants with the elastic waistband to help maximize your pumpkin pie intake, take a moment to head over to XUMO. We’ve got you covered with delectable dessert recipes, ideas for what to do with your leftovers and invaluable advice for how to discuss politics with your loved ones during the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving from the XUMO team!
Just when we thought the election was over and we could go a week without discussing politics, something horrible happens…family comes over for Thanksgiving. And in every family there are invariably a few (or more) crazies. And the kookier your beloved Crazy Aunt Helen is, the more vocal she’s going to be about her political views. Not to worry! The Onion has been kind enough to put together some tips for discussing politics with family this holiday season with gems like “Regularly remind yourself not to let political differences affect your personal relationships with your family. That’s the job of your grandfather’s estate.” and “Begin any counterpoint by irately screaming ‘I respectfully disagree!’ inches from your loved one’s face.” With tips like these, what could go wrong?
