Congratulations. I know that it was a huge task and you must be greatly relieved (I say "I know" because the dissertation was too daunting for me and is the reason that I've been ADB for 20 years.)

I felt very satisfied turning in a degree dissertation, which took me a year to do. I can't even imagine the work involved for a PHD.

I am sure this feels great. Congratulations!

Congratulations. It's an event you will always remember.
I was lucky enough to finish my physics PhD thesis on my birthday. What a euphoric feeling! I have never forgotten the wonderful moment when I wrote the last few words. I'm sure that it will be the same for you. Enjoy!!
