30 Instagram Captions For Before Christmas & All The Holiday Cheer

Originally Published: 

Presents? Wrapped and placed perfectly underneath the tree. Christmas movies? Watched, multiple times. Hot chocolate? Brewed with just the right amount of marshmallows. It's safe to say you're ahead of the game this year when it comes to gearing up for the holidays. You just need some Instagram captions for before Christmas, because you're simply glowing with holiday cheer.

Some of your friends may relate to the Grinch — complaining about the crowds at the shopping malls and the constant holiday music that's playing in your apartment. But you're quite the opposite. You announce to the people in the busy parking lots that evergreen is your new favorite color, and recite quotes from The Holiday on the regular. You love baking all the holiday cookies for everyone on your "nice" list too. (Step aside, Buddy the Elf. There's a new Christmas lover in town.)

Nobody can really reach your level of excitement, and it may be getting your tinsel in a tangle. You need someone to gush about the holidays with — someone who will understand your love for candy canes and putting twinkly lights on literally everything.

Here's an idea: Why don't you post a picture on social media before all of the festivities start? One of your followers is bound to appreciate your big red bows and special ornaments, and want to leave you a comment like, “Your tree is lookin’ pine!” Just add one of these captions for before Christmas and watch all of your notifications roll in.
