When families and friends come together for the holidays, it's a fantastic opportunity to share stories and reminisce, recounting unspoken and treasured memories. Having these conversations, particularly with older members of our families, can unlock amazing stories whilst acknowledging the importance of their lives and stories.

 

 

Here are some conversation starters for you in our ‘Time To Talk’ download. Not all of these questions will be relevant for your friends and family, and you'll likely think of others. But if you're not sure where to start or how to keep the conversation going round the festive dinner table, we hope you find these helpful. Enjoy sharing the story this Christmas.
