It’s the season to have an attitude of gratitude, and this year, there’s so much to be thankful for. With the right precautions, we may be able to get together with some of our friends and family again and celebrate with an in-person feast. While you’re together, be sure to capture the memories and post to Instagram with a heartfelt Thanksgiving 2021 caption.

If you and the fam are spending the holidays together this year, it’s totally possible that you could be feasting together on Turkey Day. If you missed out spending time together in-person last November, you’ll want to be sure to savor every moment, from the scent of apple pie filling the kitchen, to the love and laughter you share around the table. Posting your pics to Instagram with sweet Thanksgiving 2021 captions will help you to look back on this day, year after year, and remember the good times you had together.

Plus, there’s a lot of hilarity that ensues at Thanksgiving dinner with the fam that you’ll also want to call out. Why not show off your stretchy pants with a funny Thanksgiving caption, or throw in a pun about “gourd times with your family”? You won’t forget the fun you had, and neither will everyone on your Instagram feed.

It’s almost time to casse-roll up to dinner, so get your camera app ready and check out these Thanksgiving 2021 captions for Instagram.
