As the end of the calendar year draws closer, families across the U.S. are gathering for the holidays. It’s a special time of year that everyone cherishes, but with the good comes the bad. Sometimes, these family gatherings can be stressful for a few reasons, and that’s why we want to make this holiday season different. Here at Audio Video Excellence, we want everyone to have the best Thanksgiving possible, so below are a few tips to help you survive the holiday — courtesy of our home theater design services Atlanta professionals.
Spending this holiday with some extended family members means that the dinner table will be surrounded by a blended group of various backgrounds. Some might lean more conservative whereas other hold a liberal point-of-view, but that doesn’t mean Thanksgiving is bound to be argument-filled and tense. Engage in conversations that show that you’re interested in the lives of everyone in the family. Be open, curious and genuine when talking with loved ones. Try bringing up relevant topics that aren’t controversial. Some conversation points include:
Finding middle ground in the midst of tension can be difficult. This holiday is supposed to be fun-loving, so keep the conversation light-hearted. Respect goes a long way when family members are spending time together. At the end of the day, if all else fails, find some common ground by popping on one of your favorite Thanksgiving movies.
After your bellies are full and all the dishes are clean, spend some time as a family around the entertainment system, especially if yours has been professionally installed by home theater design services Atlanta. Round up the family and start or continue a family tradition by watching a movie. Some of our Thanksgiving favorites here at Audio Video Excellence are A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
If your party can’t decide on a movie to watch, then try seeing if anyone is up for playing a video game on your beautiful home entertainment system. Dive into fun-for-the-whole-family, multiplayer titles such as the Mario Kart franchise or Jackbox on your console of choice.
We’re just weeks away from winter-like temperatures here in Atlanta. The winter months are perfect for hunkering down and enjoying a home theater with your family.
