Christmas is almost here, folks! Everything about this time of year is magical, from the weather, to the food, to the presents. The one thing that makes it even more special is having someone you love by your side — especially if it's your first Christmas together. There's nothing quite as exciting as bringing your SO home to meet your family, integrating them into your traditions, and of course, taking sweet pictures under the mistletoe, so keep these Instagram captions for your first Christmas together in your back pocket.
Of course, like all the important moments in life, you're probably going to want to immortalize this special "first" on social media. Instagram was basically created for Christmastime, when the world is extra sparkly, festive, and covered in twinkling lights. Once you've got your boo, your setting, and your puppy-dog eyes for each other, don't spend time overanalyzing what to caption your perfect holiday 'gram. Make it sweet, personal, and to-the-point. Here are some ideas to get you started.
