Gobble gobble everybody! It’s that special time here in the States – we’re about to celebrate one of our favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. It’s a time when families get together, reminisce about the good times of the past year and shove their faces full of delicious, (hopefully) homemade pies.
My favorite part of Thanksgiving is getting my huge family together from all around the world. I currently live in San Francisco, my sister lives in Washington DC and her husband is moving to the U.S. from Bangladesh. My mom is from Romania and my dad from Poland and we all assemble at my cousin’s house in New Jersey. We’ve even got our cousins coming in from Israel this year. Like most intercontinental families, we don’t get a lot of time to talk, let alone see each other’s faces over the years.
There’s always that moment of melancholy when we finally do meet face to face and we see that another year of experiences has gone by. But that feeling is quickly ameliorated by our Thanksgiving tradition of the “Grateful Hotseat”. Everyone sits around the almost comically large Thanksgiving table and one by one, each person stands up in front of the family and tells everyone what they appreciate about the people around the table.
Treehouse has so much to be thankful for. We’ve just reached our one year anniversary, exceeded 16,000 members and Treehouse Members have collectively unlocked over 260,000 badges! We’ve been so fortunate to have such a wonderful community around us that we’d like to give back.
Thomas, a Treehouse student, emailed us and said:
“Treehouse has provided me with an affordable education plan to propel me to a tangible future in a perpetual, fast-paced, forward-driven industry. I am pleased and sincerely grateful for this wonderful opportunity and I am having the time of my life. I intend to make full use of this wonderful gift and hopefully create something useful. I cannot wait for others around the world to experience Treehouse and unlock their potential.”
