What Was The Best Thing That Happened To You In 2014? Our Readers Respond

Huffington Post Canada

What a year: 2014 is almost over and as it comes to a close, it's natural to think back on the year that was.

But instead of just looking at the big stories that made an impact on the news, we thought we'd turn it around and find out about the moments that made it such a memorable year for our readers.

Earlier this month we asked our readers, "What was the best thing that happened to you in 2014?"

We received dozens of responses and we've collected our favourites.

Thank you for letting us be part of your lives this year. What was the best thing that happened to you this year? Share with us in the comments.
