20 Snow Day Instagram Caption Ideas That Will Remind You Of The Magic Of Winter

Ad failed to load

There's nothing like anticipating a snow day. While growing up in upstate New York, I bought into tons of superstitions that were purported to encourage snowfall, all in hopes I'd wake up to a thick white blanket of fresh snow outside my window. From wearing your pajamas inside out to sleeping with a spoon under your pillow, the ideas were endless. While as an adult, enjoying a snow day no longer means skipping a day of school, that doesn't make it any less amazing or beautiful. Personally, one of the first things I always move to do is post a snow day picture on Instagram — but I find I keep running into the same issue: what snow day quote do I use as an Instagram caption?

Unlike when we were younger, it's now unthinkably easy to share snaps from your snow day with your friends — you just post something on Instagram. Settling on a caption can be the toughest part of posting a photo, though, so to ensure you don't fall into the habit of just using the snowflake emoji again, read on for the best snow day captions that embrace the magic of winter.
