If you are an avid Instagram user, then you already know that simply posting a good photo isn't enough nowadays — you also have to have a great caption to go with it. When choosing the perfect words to describe your photo, you could go for something inspiring, heartfelt, or funny. Your best bet, though, is probably a pun, especially around the holidays. Sure, some puns might veer on the "dad joke" side, but they're still cute, funny, playful, and clever — all the things you want as part of your social media presence! If you're looking for Christmas Instagram caption ideas, a pun might be just the thing.
There are actually a ton of Christmas puns to choose from, and unfortunately, a lot of them revolve around dirty humor that comes off as more creepy and perverted than silly and festive (think: "If you jingle my bells, I'll promise you a white Christmas."). Luckily, these certainly aren't the only options out there. Whether you're posting a #foodgram of your dinner, a fun picture of you and all your friends, or just bragging about your decorating skills, there's a pun to go with your photo. Pick one (or more!) from below, and get into the Christmas spirit online.
