One of my favorite memories of Thanksgiving was when both my family and my husband Mark’s family celebrated Thanksgiving together at my sister’s home. My sister had a jar of questions that we passed around between the last bite of turkey and the first slice of pie. We had my grandmother who was 91 and daughter who was 18 and every age in between, all around this table, so you can image the answers where very diverse. We even set the video camera up before dinner and just let it run…let me tell you it is really funny to watch now, but oh so special.
Take a moment and print off the below 21 questions and put them in a jar and do the same at your table this year, guaranteed you will be learning something new about your table guests!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
If you could have named yourself, what name would you have picked?
Who is the funniest person at the table and why?
Pretend you just won $5 million. What’s the first thing you would buy?
If I were a pair of shoes, what kind would I be?
What was the best part of your day?
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
If you could be a famous person for a week, who would you be and why?
If you could have any superpower, which would you choose?
If you had one wish (and you can’t wish for more wishes), what would you wish for and why?
If you could eat just one food everyday for a month and nothing else, what would it be?
What is your biggest fear?
What are you grateful for?
What are you proudest of?
What’s been the happiest moment of your life so far?
What’s been the hardest moment of your life, and how did you get through it?
What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
How would you describe yourself as a child? Were you happy?
Who has been kindest to you?

If your great great grandchildren could listen to this years from now: is there any wisdom you’d want to pass on to them? What would you want them to know?
If you could honor one person in your life — living or dead — by listening to their story, who would that be, what would you ask them and why?
