It's Thanksgiving in America, a day to give thanks, spend time with family, friends, & loved ones and share a warm meal. 2018 has not always been the most easy of years to live through, I thought it'd be nice to have a place to share thanks, to acknowledge that we made it another year on this planet, that we did it together. I'm thankful for my family, my friends, my partner, and all of you. I'm thankful that MetaFilter exists. Cheers.
Happy Thanktoberfest! What's Thanktoberfest? It's a holiday that, like actual Oktoberfest, has only the loosest relation to October. Thanktoberfest runs from Canadian Thanksgiving through American Thanksgiving, and we encourage you to focus on things you're thankful for -- making posts about awesome things you're grateful exist, thanking other mefites for their awesomeness, and just generally spreading good vibes and gratitude all around the site. Tag your posts thanktoberfest and we'll have some thankfulness metatalks and at the end of Thanktoberfest we'll have a big thanking post where we all thank each other for our favorite Thanktoberfest posts!
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! Tonight's topic: What are you thankful for? Big or small, silly or serious, share the things you're thankful for this year.
American Thanksgiving is tomorrow, so I thought this would be a good time to (turkey!) trot out some thanking and maybe even some giving. [more inside]
This is a callout. I accuse each and every one of you of being awesome. [more inside]
