So go to dinner with an American friend with an encyclopedia under his arm! Or you can just stock up on a couple of interesting facts here. By the way, the Americans call them a special term - 'dinner conversation starters'.

But seriously, "flaunting" the facts can be avoided. The fact is that the owners of the Christmas dinner, as a rule, cut out smart cards with questions that do not necessarily relate to the holidays. For example, "What would you change in the country if you were president?" or “What would you buy if you won a million dollars?” The guests take turns pulling a card from a bag or jar and answering the question.
