Thanksgiving captions that add flare (and humor) to your feed

Thanksgiving is a time of year where we get together with loved ones to eat delicious food, participate in fun Thanksgiving traditions, and celebrate the things we’re grateful for. We eat lots of food, share plenty of laughs, and, of course, take a ton of pictures. These pictures of you and your loved ones are treasured memories, and as such, you need the perfect Thanksgiving captions to sum up the unforgettable times had.

These captions are a little different from your typical selfie captions; they capture the humor of Thanksgiving, how great the food is, and what you’re most grateful for. Feel free to use these captions (or one of these great Thanksgiving quotes) when posting your Thanksgiving pictures this year.
