45 Thanksgiving Captions for Instagram in 2018
Though it deserves to have its own time in the sun, Thanksgiving serves as an unofficial kickoff to the holiday season, a prequel of sorts to the combination of Christmas and New Years that greets people around the world at the end of the year. Yet, we can’t overlook Thanksgiving, even as we begin to plan our trips to stores for Black Friday, the gifts we’ll exchange throughout the next month with friends and family, and of course, the celebration for the start of a new year. Instead, it’s important to consider Thanksgiving for what it is: a time to be thankful for the good things in your life. A time to consider where you are in your life and where you’re going. A time to enjoy the company of family, friends, and assorted loved ones. And of course, a time to feast on a delicious turkey, or a healthy meatless substitute of your choice.
So, as you gather this week to give thanks for the joys in your life, remember to create memories with the people around you. Thanksgiving isn’t complete without photos to memorialize the occasion, and it’s important to have captions and quotes to label those photos online when posting them on Instagram or Snapchat. Check out some of these festive and heartwarming captions for sharing your favorite family moments on Instagram, or come up with a few of your own.

As much as you can, remember to keep your phone away and to spend the day with your family. Take photos of your family and friends, but consider waiting until Friday to post those photos on Instagram. By waiting to share your photos until the day after, you can enjoy the food, eat way too much pie, and fall asleep in front of the television watching Shrek on Netflix without having to worry about missing out on your uncle’s war stories. Happy Thanksgiving!
