Forums - General Discussion - What are you thankful for?

Thursday, November 28th is Thanksgiving Day in the US, Canada, Japan, and Germany as well as a few others.  

I know there is some controversy regarding this holiday, as with all holidays, but I would love for all of us to take the time to celebrate the spirit of this day.  We all spend a lot of time wishing for this or complaining about that, but this day is a day of acceptance and appreciation. So what are you thankful for?  It could be gaming related, or hobby related, but it could also be something on a more personal level.  No thread is without its share of snarkiness, so I'm assuming we'll get a few of those responses as well. 

Hope you're all able to spend the day with your families and enjoy a warm, home cooked meal.  I'm only responsible for bringing rolls and stuffing, so that would be the first thing I could say I'm thankful for.

And you?

Germany/Japan? Pretty sure it's just a US thing to do with the Adam's Family.

My mother.

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

I am thankful for my wife and daughter.
