Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Our  club had its meeting today, despite it being the day before Thanksgiving and many people being out of town.

I had planned on resorting to an all Table Topics meeting given the expected low turnout.

As a pleasant surprise, we actually had two members volunteer to present prepared speeches.


I served as Table Topics Master today, as well as Toastmaster to keep things moving smoothly since I had planned to have to do without speeches.

For the Table Topics, I presented eight holiday-inspired questions in honor of Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season.  I will share the questions below.

As a fun exercise, I’d love to read your answers to the questions in the comments.

Let’s hear what you have to say!

  1. Describe your favorite meal growing up.  What was it?  What do you remember fondly about it?
  2. Describe your best or most memorable Christmas Gift.
  3. What types of holiday traditions did you have in your family?
  4. Tell a story about your Grandparents.
  5. Count your blessings: list as many things as possible that you’re thankful for, and why.
  6. Describe your ideal vacation.  What would you do?  Where would you go?
  7. Tell us about a gift you really wanted when you were a child, but didn’t get.
  8. What’s the best thing you’ve ever done for someone else?
