  • Show up on time.
  • Show up with something.
  • Don't pile up your plate, you can always go back for more.
  • Don't yell, "I want some dark meat".
  • Offer to help but don't insist.
  • If you're hosting, don't treat your guests like the help. 
  • Spare your guests from endless recipe secrets, e.g. "I rubbed the bird with roasted bourbon buttered salt." If they ask, do tell.
  • Be grateful and gracious even if your dinner has as much taste as the illustration above.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'll add one. Never eat two dozen oysters before dinner.
