How to Get the Best Seat at the Holiday Table

Having friends and family over and worried about where they will sit? Use this guide so everyone plays nice this holiday season.

The Host
You’ll want easy access to the kitchen -- sit at the head of the table.

Significant Other
Seat across or diagonal from you for optimal support and occasional footsy.

Divorced Parents
Keep on the same side but at opposite ends.

Happily talks to everyone so sit in the middle of the table.

Seat near the extrovert of the family or your crazy aunt whose stories are never ending.

Place at the head of the table to keep the peace, i.e., Switzerland.
