I found this below and thought it was some solid advice as we move forward into more holidays. Family ‘no phone zone’ Thanksgiving Day challenge Leave your phone out of the tradition
Silence is golden — All cell phones should be on silent or vibrate mode on Thanksgiving Day.
Create a cell-phone free zone — Family can text, talk, surf online, and check Facebook as much as they want during the football game and kitchen prep, but not at the Thanksgiving table.
No paparazzi — Take photos of family before or after the meal, but don’t whip out your camera phone during dinner.
Take personal conversations outside (or in a different room) — If you must take or make a call on Thanksgiving Day, step outside or into another room, so that others aren’t forced to overhear your call.
Take a break between courses — if people need to check their phones, build in breaks between the meal and dessert when everyone is stretching their legs anyway.
Enjoy your family this Thanksgiving, and consider putting your phone away. You can get back on it after you’re stuffed with turkey and can’t move anymore!
