The Observation Deck was born 7 years ago this week and this is the fourth day of that week. In the US it’s Thanksgiving, or Yanksgiving as about 12 people in Canada call it every year before it sounds weird and they stop because it is illegal in Canada to make fun of Americans for things that are not their fault.

Today’s topic, if you choose to discuss it:

What in the past year of Observation Deck content / ODeck people are you thankful for?

Alternate question:

Did you ever watch the Star Wars Holiday Special? It aired 38 years and a week ago, just FYI.

Answer #1 for me is: I’ve had some good interactions with the people on here in the past year and I’m not just saying that because I got sent some jackalope paraphernalia. But in general you’re all delightful and I continue to be glad to have met your Internets acquaintance.

Answer #2 for me is: I was not alive when the original aired. I downloaded a copy years ago but I have yet to watch it.
