For people with a big appetite, Thanksgiving may be the best holiday there is. Turkey, stuffing, clouds of mashed potatoes, fresh cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie for days — the list of hearty, autumnal foods goes on. And what better way to share your celebration of thanks than with a clever Instagram caption? While colorful filters and editing can make a photo pop, nothing will impress your followers more than a funny caption.

Of course, at Travel + Leisure, we firmly believe Thanksgiving is a perfect excuse to ditch the dining room table and take a late fall trip, too. If your Thanksgiving plans include more flights than turkey, there is just one more reason to perfect your Thanksgiving Instagram strategy.

Below, we’ve sorted through witty and funny Thanksgiving sayings, classic Thanksgiving quotes and well wishes, and (because we can't help ourselves) a few turkey puns, to make sure your Instagram followers get a smile out of your Turkey Day post.

Thanksgiving Well Wishes

Let our lives be full of both thanks and giving.
