13 Tips for Politics-Free Family Celebration Success. How to ensure your next family gathering is all about celebrating your family’s history and stories without getting caught up in politics:

  1. Before the gathering, agree to keep the conversation centered around what truly connects your family – your shared history and stories.
  2. Invite everyone to bring digitized pictures of their loved ones from various stages of life.
  3. Take turns sharing your favorite memories and anecdotes about the people in the pictures. This will help you all connect on a personal level, transcending any political differences.
  4. Keep the mood light and fun – don’t let political discussions spoil the atmosphere. If someone starts a contentious conversation, gently guide it to more pleasant topics like shared memories and personal interests.
  5. Dive into the treasure trove of old photos and home movies. Create a digital slideshow and share it on your TV screen. Encourage everyone to find and scan their most cherished family memories to discuss during the reunion.
  6. If you have a family historian, instead of searching for great-grandma’s fruitcake recipe, ask them to bring photo albums and recently scanned pictures spanning your family’s history.
  7. Dust off those old photos, slide carousels, negatives, and reels of home movies from the past, and have them digitized before the gathering.
  8. Get everyone involved in unlocking their collection of pre-digital snapshots.
  9. Share stories from your most magical memories, steering clear of political debates.
  10. Remember that what truly unites us is engaging in healthy conversations and sharing those heartwarming family photos rather than stumbling into the minefield of political arguments.
  11. Instead of arguing, focus on reminiscing.
  12. Swap confrontation for laughter.
  13. Instead of shouting, share happy tears as you revisit your nostalgia – together as a family.
