Thanksgiving is upon us!

Before we descend into our food comas, the Zap2it Team wanted to give thanks for some of the pop culture moments we’re most thankful for in 2012. We’ve got sports, music, TV, and movies covered — and even books, if you can call a “Teen Mom” memoir a book.

We’re thankful for celebrities behaving badly, celebrities behaving well, and celebrities making babies. We’re thankful for Claire Danes’ crying, which unified a divided nation this year. We’re thankful for big movie franchises, like “The Hunger Games,” and we’re very thankful that “Twilight” is over. We’re thankful for reality television, well-planned television seasons, killer moments on premium cable television… and we’re thankful for Retta from “Parks & Rec” for live-tweeting it all.

Mostly, we’re thankful for you, our readers, for your interaction and your comments, and for watching, tweeting, reading, and laughing with us. Check out what our editors and writers are most thankful for, and then let us know in the comments section what you’re giving thanks for in the pop culture world.
