Calling all Christmas addicts: As you already know, it's the most wonderful time of the year again, and, as always, the most wonderful time of the year comes with all kinds of festive stuff like cookies, ornaments, and music. That being said, there is one festive staple that the holidays just wouldn't be complete without; that's right, you guessed it: Elf. Let's be honest, no matter how many times you watch Buddy singing loud for all to hear, it's just never enough, which is why Elf quotes for your Instagram captions are perfect for your ~festive~ holiday uploads. There's just something about the cheer that Buddy brings to the holidays that you just can't get anywhere else.

The best part about quotes from Elf, though (aside from being universally recognizable), is that they're completely applicable to any holiday situation — no matter how ridiculous they are. Indeed, whether you're trimming the tree with the fam, having a Christmas cookie swap with your friends, or just wanna show off your new Secret Santa gift, there will always be a perfect caption for any picture or video you post this year. So sit back, relax, and let Elf do all the talking for you.
