Today's a real shit day for me, not because of the holiday but because of the events in my life leading up to today, but I just wanted to pop in and tell HN Happy Thanksgiving because this community is wonderful even with its flaws. Thanks for everything over the years and many to come.

Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving proclamation:

The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature that they cannot fail to penetrate and even soften the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.

In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign states to invite and provoke their aggressions, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict; while that theater has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defense have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship; the ax has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege, and the battlefield, and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom.

No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American people. I do, therefore, invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a Day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens. And I recommend to them that, while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners, or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty hand to heal the wounds of the nation, and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility, and union.

It's an understatement to call HN a daily read for me. Does anyone else check the comments before following the link? The perspectives shared here are a valuable part of my information diet. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to the HN community!

Thanks to everyone here for kipping some sanity and wisdom in the wilderness of the Internet, thanks to dang for making it possible and thanks to the person that more than a decade ago recommended me to visit at least once per day the front page of HN. The latter definitely changed my professional career.

I’m grateful for:

The opportunities that this industry has provided me.

I’m grateful for my wife.

I’m grateful for my health.

I’m thankful for the privilege of living in the current time and being free and able to (hopefully) make it a better place. I’m thankful to live in a place where I can just be how I am without having to worry that it will get me killed, or even hassled.
monetus 11d
Hope everyone has a good one.

Any recipes to share?

swlkr 11d
Feels good to ask people what they're grateful for, taking a moment to think and be a little more introspective is nice.

Thanksgiving is one of my fav holidays.

This year my boys and I are traveling out of state to a waterpark just to try something different.

The more noise fills news and social media, the more I end up consuming HN instead of any other source. With GPT3 generated content now flooding the web that applies even more so. I’m going to eventually convince my non-engineering friends to join in as well. Maybe HN can apply some tagging on content so they can filter for the less technical stuff that is more accessible to them.

Thank you HN and thank you Dang and YC!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to dang and to the HN community

When I had children, a family of my own, I came to find Thanksgiving my favorite holiday. Seemingly immune to the commercialization (I'm going to disassociate Black Friday with Thanksgiving), it became for me a day to relax, hang out with the family and ... be thankful.

How pure and unencumbered is that?

Best thing the U.S. has come up with. (Landing on the Moon was cool too though.)

pacomerh 11d
Certainly thankful as well. There's no other resource like this. I only hope this quality of moderation keeps it up for a very long time.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'm grateful for all the cool projects I get to see through HN :)

This is my favorite community on the internet. It's the only one I don't feel gross about after spending time on it.

Shout out to all the talented people here and for @dang for keeping things in check.

I've been reading HN almost daily for almost a decade now. I found it through a friend who has taught me a lot about programming, the internet, and nerdy things in general. When I discovered HN, it felt like I had a whole community of people similar to my friend who introduced me to it.
birdies 11d
I'm thankful for this community! Sometimes I don't feel smart enough to be here... but I am thankful to lurk for now!
danso 11d
Thanks for making this thread. It'd be fun to have a regular Thanksgiving/Christmas Eve thread where people post cooking and other holiday-related hacks.

Discovering HN has given me a better education than my masters degree

Thank you to Ycombinator for allowing the Hacker News team editorial freedom, and thank you to the editorial team for the work you do.

Lastly, thank you to the users here that continually teach me new things, and for helping me see the world and myself in different ways. I'm a better person because of this site, your posts, and your comments. Stay classy out there!

sph 11d
I mean it when I say that software engineering as a career would not be as fun if HN didn't exist.

Here is a well moderated safe haven for technical and business discussion, incredibly popular yet holding itself to a higher intellectual standard than the rest of the internet, where I can ask questions, share opinions, learn from others, publicise my startup or pet project and be taken seriously.

Long live Hacker News.

I am thankful for HN being there for me every day. This place feels like a cozy home for my higher brain functions.

There has not been a bad mood that I could not eventually distract away by either reading comments or getting actively involved in some conversation here. Rarely do I walk away from a day of browsing HN without new project ideas dancing in my head.

HN has also been invaluable for validating certain technical concepts over the years. All in all, I certainly owe this community much more than it owes me.

raasdnil 11d
Thank you to @dang and team for keeping the balance right here, it's a thankless (usually) job but it is pulled off with aplomb and style.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on HN today!

For young people like me who are new to the tech industry, this year has been a realization that tech is anything other than "a rollercoaster that only goes up." But I am so thankful for everyone in this community, and ones like it, for bringing so much rigor, growth, and opportunity to the world. I'm thankful for my co-workers, customers, readers, and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving! May your thoughts be considerate, your stomachs be full, and your wallets not too empty (especially after this weekend)! Thanks for being an awesome, kind and thought-provoking bunch!
spinlock_ 11d
Fully agree. Without HN, I wouldn't had read books like Code, Designing Data-Intensive Applications or Operating System: Three Easy Pieces (to name just a few). I'm usually a passive reader here, but I wanted to say thank you to all of you who share their knowledge and wisdom and therefore help me to learn new things on a (almost) daily basis.
tux 11d
Thanks HN for been a gateway to the internet! This is the best social news site online! Thank you to all writers and readers! Happy thanksgiving to all!

Happy Thanksgiving HN, my home on the internet. I can’t express enough gratitude for all this site has given to me, from the knowledge, the eye opening perspectives, knowing that I’m not alone in my insatiable curiosity about the world, and also being an exemplar for high quality discourse on the internet.

Wishing you many good times with loved ones.

IronRod 11d
Grateful, yes, for rediscovering this great resource for interesting news. So many other sources have succumbed to sensationalism and have become mostly "click bait". Thank you to all the contributors, the admins and developers, and everyone who makes this enjoyable resource popular.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone at HN!

I am a long-time lurker. This is the best place to know and learn about the latest and greatest. I am thankful for all the posts and comments. I echo the overall sentiment here that this is the only place on the internet where I would rather be. My day starts with HN and ends with it.

Thanks to the fantastic team at HN, which keeps everything running smoothly.

prdpx7 11d
I have been on HN since last 10 years.

This community has inspired me to learn and build stuff – just for the heck of it.

I just wish you folks all the happiness and strength in the world.

Happy Thanksgiving ♥

I want to thank all the individuals who spend extra time making thoughtful and balanced comments. These tend not to get as much engagement on site but I promise they ruminate in my mind and help me grow as a person. Thanks.
