Christmas morning never gets less magical. Even as you get older, you never outgrow the need to get up early and start the holiday right — whether that's making breakfast for your entire family, or running straight to the Christmas tree to open up presents. There's no age limit for Christmas morning excitement. It's pretty much the only day of the year that you won't see me hit the snooze button on my alarm. When you've awoken and are camera ready, you need to document the best morning of the entire year with a picture and some Christmas morning captions for the 'Gram.

You could be taking pictures of the beautifully-wrapped boxes under the tree, the Christmas pancakes your mom whipped up, or the entire family dressed in their holiday best together. Whatever the moment may be, you'll want to snap a pic to remember the immense amount of joy in that very moment.

When you post it up on Instagram, you'll need the perfect caption to show off how you feel. We've wrapped up these 26 quotes, just for you. They'll be sitting right here under your Christmas tree for you to open the morning of Dec. 25. They'll be like the nice bow you put on top of your photo, so don't take any time away from your family traditions, and enjoy your holiday. Merry Christmas and a happy holiday to all!
