Thanksgiving 2011: Occupy Gratitude

Happy Thanksgiving, HuffPosters! There is much to be thankful for this year. I'm thankful that the UC Davis police are not in charge of security at our offices. I'm thankful that Herman Cain doesn't oversee HR here, that the supercommittee isn't responsible for determining our editorial budget, and that Mayor Bloomberg hasn't paid a visit to our nap rooms (he might find them a "health and fire safety hazard"). I'm thankful my daughters are home from college for the holidays. I'm thankful my move to New York has brought me a great new neighborhood filled with surprises around every corner. And I'm very thankful for our great HuffPost team -- which rose to the challenge of adding 24 new sections since March -- and for our passionate, engaged community. How about you? What are you thankful for? Let us know in the comments section.
