Oh yes...everyone loves Thanksgiving...but not one loves tense conversations that may arrive at the Thanksgiving table.  If you've watched Season 2 of the FX show "The Bear," there is a holiday episode that really captures the essence of this.  So, what should Texans not talk about at the Thanksgiving dinner to cause all this controversy, screaming and crying?

Well, The team at Bet Ohio conducted a 3,000-person Thanksgiving survey across Texas to reveal the most disliked topics around the dinner table.

While family disputes may not be surprising at 58%, it ranked number one in Texas. Coming in a close second at 51%, with the US Presidential Election approaching in 2024, many Americans are deciding to avoid this topic during conversations next week. After all, who wants to hear about your parents' political views when bringing your girlfriend home to meet the family for the first time?
