Thanksgiving means turkey time. As the holiday quickly approaches, you're preparing yourself for the most delicious home-cooked meal, complete with mashed potatoes, stuffing, warm gravy, and cranberry sauce. You're excited to spend time with family from near and far, and it'll definitely be a holiday for the books. Naturally, you'll take lots of photos, so you'll need to be equipped with some turkey captions for Thanksgiving when it comes time to post.
A turkey is often the centerpiece of a traditional Thanksgiving meal, and every family celebrates the big bird in their own way. Some turkey recipes may be a family secret, passed down from generation to generation. And even if you don't celebrate with a turkey, you know just how symbolic a turkey is for the holiday.
As you dig through your drawers for your coziest sweater and jeans, pour a mug of warm cider or hot cocoa, and brace yourself for all of the life questions your extended family will inevitably ask you, remember to have fun. Take some pics, enjoy the holiday, and give thanks, because there's so much to be grateful for. Happy gobbling.
