What happened to November? Thanksgiving 2017 is almost upon us, which means a mad scramble of googling epic, Instagramable Thanksgiving dishes so your holiday looks totally boss on social media, even if that vegan pumpkin pie is really a bust IRL. These unique Thanksgiving 2017 Instagram caption ideas will help you find the funny on turkey day so can get some virtual love, which especially gratifying if your not getting any at your IRL Thanksgiving celebration.
While it's ultimately a time to be grateful, in between all of the gobble gobble, Thanksgiving is known to devolve into a lot of squabbles. Perhaps this is because people who haven't seen each other all year get together, which makes a traditional airing of grievances inevitable. I mean, just look at all of the TV episodes and movies dedicated to Thanksgiving familial turmoil.
In one of my favorite Thanksgiving movies, Home for the Holidays, Holly Hunter's character Claudia comforts her mom — who has resorted to chain smoking in the closet after discovering her son married his partner without telling anyone, her sister kissed her husband, and Claudia got fired and made out with her boss, amongst other things.
Claudia tells her mom Adele, "Nobody means what they say on Thanksgiving, Mom. You know that. That's what the day's supposed to be all about, right? Torture." While it's great to have everyone under one roof, perhaps Adele really wants to tell everyone, "go pluck yourself," because she says, "I'm giving thanks that we don't have to go through this for another year. Except we do, because those bastards went and put Christmas right in the middle, just to punish us."
Of course, most people aren't likely to Instagram these moments because the lives we live on Instagram are the ones we aspire to live IRL. However, you can recast your holiday horror with these unique unique Thanksgiving 2017 Instagram caption ideas.
