There was a time that I can recall going from Gotham Heights to Wayne Manor to Rhode Island all in the course of 24 hours, and on two holidays no less: Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The reason that I had to make multiple trips? I had have quite the extended family. I ate Thanksgiving/Christmas dinner with my dad, my stepmom and Mrs. Mac-before she returned home. Right after I finished a small portion-and promised Dad that I'd eat the leftovers over the weekend-I made the trek from my home to Wayne Manor and started the whole eating process over again with Bruce, Dick, Alfred, Barbara and Cassandra; Barbara showed up just as late as me, since she would spend dinner with Comm. Gordon.

After amusing myself many times by watching Dick try-and fail-at carving the turkey and eating another good portion of food, I went down to the 'Cave, dressed up as Robin and spent a few hours on the road and made my way to the Young Justice HQ to finish my celebratory day with Kon, Bart, Cassie, Cissie and Greta; as the years passed, we added and subtracted members, but the six of us would always spend the day together no matter what.

The Titans can't spend Thanksgiving together, at least not yet. You all know why, so there's no need to go into it now. Christmas isn't even a question of yes or no; regardless of what's happening, we're spending that holiday together. As for what happened at Wayne Manor...

Not only had I surprised my family with an added addition to our table, I was surprised by a returning member-I think the black sheep is still trekking the Multiverse-to the table. This year, I got to eat Thanksgiving dinner with Bruce, Dick, Alfred, Barbara, Kara and Cassandra.

I think Kara enjoyed watching Dick try and fail-again-with carving the turkey repeatedly before he said he'd try again at Christmas and didn't consider this raising the white flag. Though I could've done without falling on my ass while pulling apart the wishbone, Kara. Damn your Kryptonian powers giving you the advantage! XD

What I'm thankful for can be summed up in 12 words: That I was able to forget all my troubles for one day...
