Sometimes it may seem as though that in the brave new world of today, everything revolves around me-me-me. Whether people are fidgeting with their iPhones, viewing content on their trusty Galaxy tablet, or catching up on a book on a Kindle, our technology seems to divide us from one another more than it unites us. We sometimes feel as though society is flying apart, and it’s all we can do to hold on to the loved ones in our orbit. That’s why holidays like Thanksgiving are so important – because they’re a day for family and friends to come together again, to put aside their individual interests for a time and pull together in a holiday based on being thankful for what we have.
Instead of thinking about ourselves all the time, expressing feelings of communal spirit and holiday time serenity via Instagram hashtags can be a great way to reconnect. (If you’re looking for Instagram captions for Thanksgiving, of course we have you covered there also.)
Addressing the Merry Occasion Itself
For starters, simply acknowledging the holiday at hand will do the trick. To approach this, you can use any of the following hashtags:
#HappyThanksgiving #thanks #givingthanks #countyourblessings #givingback #familytime #celebrate #Fall2019 #thanksgivingdinner #thanksgivingweekend #preptime #feasttime #thanksgivingtable #pilgrimspride
Addressing the Food
Thanksgiving is a holiday that’s about giving, sharing, and caring as much as it is about stuffing yourself senseless with turkey and pumpkin pies. Don’t worry about it, though – it’s all in good spirits and for festive purposes, so do use this merry aspect of this holiday to make a statement on Instagram. Here are some suggestions:
#Turkeycarving #turkeycoma #passthegravy #stuffing #pumpkinpie #thanksgivingdinner #cooking #homemade #feast
And by ‘advanced hashtags’, we mean we’ve compiled some hashtags here that will show your audience you actually did some brainwork and decided to get creative. Having said this, we’d encourage you to really try thinking of some interesting personal story for your hashtags instead of just copying what others are doing. (We’re not against copying, but no one’s ever said no to a fresh idea, be it in the form of a hashtag.)
Addressing the Occasion and the Food – Personalized Way
Lest we forget to mention it, although it is rather obvious, the hashtags are only going to be as effective as the content they’re behind. So, if you’re uploading a picture, for example, make sure it’s an interesting, possibly even an anecdote-worthy one! Then you can add some of this stuff to it:
#healthythanksgiving (In case you made some gluten-free food or something.) #TurkeyDayFail #TurkeyDayFails #PregnantTurkeyPrank (In case you’ve successfully pranked your kids by putting a Cornish hen inside the turkey. That’s how the prank goes, by the way.) #CornishHenned (In case it was you who was on the receiving end of the prank.) #uncarveable #TurkeyLove
The goal here is to create a post that tells a story rather than just ensuring you’ve addressed the occasion. A merry family picture of folks stuffing themselves with pumpkin pie or siblings meticulously breaking the Wishbone is going to be far more valuable than just a blunt statement saying:
Hi folks, happy thanksgiving nd all that. #thnx
The more creative and story-telling a hashtag is, the more unique it will be, so the chances of you getting more traffic off of it, as a result, will be much higher than with just a bland caption and a half-hearted hashtag. (For example, some Thanksgiving-themed cookies make a great photo – here’s a set of Thanksgiving cookie cutters for you to check out.)
Shopping Til You’re Dropping
Of course, one part of Thanksgiving is the fact that the next day is the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, and you may be the kind of person who wants to draw attention to your consumer plans.

Bottom line, to attract people to your account, make sure to keep its Thanksgiving hashtags merry, convivial and possibly based on some real-life event! We hope you found this article helpful and wish you some joyous Thanksgiving ‘Instagramming’!
