Now we have all been there – the ones reasonably awkward, wine-fuelled circle of relatives conversations at Christmas that become the once a year circle of relatives row (and that is the reason sooner than anyone suggests Monopoly).

A handy guide a rough shout of “Alexa, exchange the topic!” will cause your instrument to signify one thing else to speak about.
It suggests such things as “What would your superpower be and why?”, and extra controversially, “Is Die Arduous a Christmas film?”, which is in reality more likely to get started extra arguments than it fixes.
