Happy Bungie Day, everyone! You know how it’s awkward when it’s your birthday and you are having to open presents while a bunch of people watch you. Then people begin singing... and you just want to escape out of a window? That’s kind of what this is like for us. We wish we were pretentious enough to make up a holiday dedicated to ourselves, but looking back, we like to use this opening paragraph to anxiously explain that we would never do something like that.
Bungie Day was created by our amazing community long, long ago because of something to do with our weird fixation on the number seven. So here we are on the seventh day of the seventh month celebrating our still-amazing community and the years of action-packed memories forged in the worlds we’ve created. Without you, this world wouldn’t feel as bright as it does.
Between the charity initiatives you’ve supported and constant comradery we see on display throughout social media and in-person events, we can safely say that every day with this community is a gift. You’ve been a beacon of hope, a source of joy, a ferocious beast hellbent on wearing a raid boss's ass as a hat, and so much more. Thank you for everything you’ve done, and everything you will do in the future.
