So you’ve thawed your turkey, you’ve baked your pies and you’ve set your table with care. But somewhere between the cornbread and the cranberry sauce, you forgot to prepare for the inevitable: The moment when Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce enter the dinner conversation.

Sure, this whirlwind celebrity romance may seem like a safer discussion topic than, say, a war, religion or the upcoming election. But from friendship bracelets to “seemingly ranch,” there are a lot of details to keep track of — and you don’t want to be the one caught looking out of the loop.

Jason Kelce: Travis’s older brother, who’s also a football guy, but plays for the Chiefs’ cross-conference rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. Jason comes up frequently in the Swiftie discourse because he co-hosts Travis’s podcast. Plus, their sibling rivalry is pretty cute.
