HuffPost Gives Thanks: What We're Grateful For This Year

Merci. Toda. Grazie. Dᅤヘmo. Gracias. Danke. Thanks.

There are so many ways to say it. And so many reasons to.

Giving thanks is a global practice, one that many Americans will make a priority this Thursday on Thanksgiving Day. Practicing gratitude has its benefits: Research suggests the simple act of saying "thank you" can boost marital happiness, and growing up grateful has been linked to many mental health benefits in teens.

In that spirit, we asked HuffPost staffers what they're grateful for this year. Take a look -- then, let us know in the comments section what you're giving thanks for.
