It might not be quite as well-established as Thanksgiving, but Friendsgiving — celebrating the harvest with the squad instead of (or in addition to) your family — has quickly become an unofficial holiday. No such celebration would be complete, of course, without hunting down the perfect funny Friendsgiving quote to share on Instagram. In a single post, you can remind everyone that you, too, have friends and know how to use Google to search for witticisms.

If you haven't done Friendsgiving at least once, you don't have to turn in your millennial card to the nearest police station or anything. But the "holiday," which Vine Pair describes as the "kids’ table, all grown-up and a little bit defiant," is a common trend among young people today. The details vary from group to group, but usually, it takes the form of a potluck, where everyone is responsible for bringing at least one dish. True to its name, it's pretty much the same menu as Thanksgiving, although the quality of your former college roommate's cranberry sauce might not be quite on par with your grandmother's. The point, though, isn't just to eat yourself into a 90-day coma. It's to eat yourself into a 90-day coma surrounded by your friends, who choose to hang out with you on a regular basis. True friendship is stuffing yourself with turkey and pumpkin pie together.

Obviously, Friendsgiving is a highly Instagrammable (not to mention Pinterestable) event. If you're at a loss for the caption to accompany the Boomerang you took of the the Friendsgiving toast, here are 17 quotes that will do the trick.
