Once Halloween comes and goes, some people may already have setting up the menorah, decking the halls, or other holiday festivities that typically happen in December on their mind — and I’m all for it. Personally, I could listen to Christmas-themed playlists all year round. However, just because all those other end-of-year holidays may have more fun decor and music doesn’t mean you should neglect the food and family-centric celebration that follows #spookySZN but precedes the rest: Thanksgiving. It’s a tur-key annual experience, and it should be documented as such on Instagram. That’s why you should have a list of funny turkey puns for Thanksgiving captions, because you’re going to document it on social media to the fullest.

Instagram is a great place to post a picture of the delicious spread your family put together, or a video of the pumpkins and fall decor around the house. It’s also a perfect time to get in the spirit with some Thanksgiving or turkey-inspired captions. Puns may not be your typical jam, but they sure make for some cute ‘Grams.

So bring on the abundance of turkey and side dishes, cherished family memories, Grandma’s homemade apple pie, and a little break from work or school. These punny Thanksgiving food captions are sure to spruce up your pun game on Instagram this #turkeySZN.
