Giving Thanks for the Big and Small Things

It’s the season to give thanks, and even given the recent events that have been happening around the world, there are still so many things to be thankful for this year.

Here at The WISHington Post HQ, we wanted to know everything that you guys, the interns of DC, are grateful for this Thanksgiving. Aside from the obvious things (like your health and family), we took to the streets of DC to hear all the (big and small) things you guys are thankful for this year. Sometimes just a good pair of cozy socks and a hug is cause for gratitude.
