Friendsgiving is a really special holiday in college. You’re in a phase where you’re establishing your “found family” and creating traditions of your own — maybe for the first time ever. For some, Friendsgiving is an exciting way to kick off a magical holiday season with loved ones. For others, it’s even deeper; not everyone is able to travel home for Thanksgiving (and some might not want to). Regardless of the circumstances, getting together to celebrate each other during one of the most sentimental times of the year — and eat delicious food while you’re at it — can bring friends even closer than they were before. 

After you spend all day cooking and baking the classic Thanksgiving dishes (or pretending to do so and just buying premade stuff from the store or reheating leftovers instead), playing games, and getting sappy about all the things you’re thankful for, there’s only one thing left to do for this holiday: Post about it! 

Whether you want to share an earnest tribute to your college friends or just humble-brag about the killer cheese board you assembled, there’s an Instagram caption for that. So go ahead and show off the great time you had with help from these cute, funny, and iconic Friendsgiving IG captions.
