More Than a Third of Americans Say Idea of Talking Politics at Thanksgiving Stresses Them Out

The holiday season is upon us! With Thanksgiving around the corner and a divisive election in the rearview mirror, millions of Americans expect to talk politics with friends and family members over the holiday, and more than a third say the idea of those conversations stresses them out.

According to an online survey conducted by ABC News and its partner SSRS, 45 percent of Americans foresee a side of political conversation with their turkey and cranberry sauce, and 38 percent said the idea of such talk is at least somewhat stressful, with 14 percent saying it is very stressful.

When asked to share one word to describe what they are most thankful for, the vast majority of respondents said “family,” followed by “life” and “health.” Also among the top 10 responses were “friends,” “Trump” and “Jesus.”

Glen Rock NJ, Thanksgiving Day 5K and Kids Fun Run in Glen Rock on Thanksgiving morning. It is going to be a wonderful family event and we are expecting a great turnout!

1. We are hosting the packet pick up in our Ridgewood store (11 N. Broad Street) for the three days leading up to Thanksgiving so it would be a great chance for the Ridgewood businesses to get involved and promote their brands/companies to the hundreds of runners that will be coming in to pick up their race packets and tshirts.
2. There is endless opportunity for the Ridgewood businesses to promote at the race.
3. Come out and run the race! There is a 5K (run/walk) and a Kids Fun Run. All levels are welcome to join in on the 5K. A lot of Ridgewood residents have already signed up but we really want to get the word out there that this fun family event is just around the corner.
4. Spread the word! As we all know, this is key to success so if people are busy Thanksgiving week and cannot participate, we would love to have everyone spread the word, hang posters in the stores, put lawn signs outside their stores/houses!
