28 Turkey Puns For Thanksgiving Instagram Captions To Feast Your Eyes On


Once Halloween comes and goes, some people may already have decking the halls and festive playlists on their mind. However, planning one major holiday — first and foremost — shouldn’t be left behind amidst the grand, festive cheer that comes with candy canes and mistletoe. Thanksgiving is a tur-key annual celebration, and it should be well documented as such. This is why you should have a list of witty turkey puns for Thanksgiving Instagram 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 puns. 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, Mom’s homemade apple pie, and a little break from work or school. I personally don’t really allow myself to get into the Christmas spirit until after my belly is full of all these goods, so Thanksgiving is a highly-anticipated event before the frenzy of winter holidays.
