If anything, your friends and family will be grateful for your refreshing sense of humor.

Thanksgiving is finally here! It’s a fabulous holiday in which we get to eat turkey and lots of delicious food with friends and family. And lucky for us, it’s also a very meme-worthy holiday.

When it comes to the holidays, there are plenty of thoughtful Thanksgiving quotes and funny Thanksgiving memes that perfectly represent the dynamics of this celebratory feast of gratitude.


There’re certainly plenty of aspects of Thanksgiving that we can find the humor in. From the over-indulgence of food to the stress of being around relatives, there’s no funny meme or thoughtful quote left behind.

In this divisive political climate, Thanksgiving has simultaneously become a holiday in which debates about politics can also take center stage. Even more ironic is the fact that the holiday is so close to Election Days. Naturally, there’s hilarious Thanksgiving memes and quotes for that part of Thanksgiving family gatherings as well.

According to History.com, Thanksgiving originated in 1621 when the Plymouth Colonists and the Wampanoag Native Americans shared an autumn harvest feast together. Over 200 years later, it was officially proclaimed a national holiday by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 — and ever since families and friends have developed many beloved traditions.

First, there’s the traditional food, such as turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, yams, and pumpkin pie. Many families have their own variations on Thanksgiving meals as well.

Another contemporary Thanksgiving tradition is the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Each year, this parade heads down 34th Street in New York City. It is perhaps the most famous parade in the U.S. and is a great lead-in to the holiday season.
