There’s so much prep in the month leading up to Christmas, too. I think that’s why it feels so exciting, to be honest. You’re shopping for a present that will make their eyes light up. You’re decorating the tree on a chilly night. And my personal favourite, hanging Christmas lights outside to spread the cheer. The perfect caption for your Instagram posts or social media is a must for any pics during the happy holiday season.

Sidenote: Christmas lights are amazing. In fact, they might be the best part of the holiday. That’s why some of us love having them up year ‘round. And have we even talked about hot chocolate?

All the Captions you Need for the Christmas Season

Anyways…You’re making a list (a Close Friend’s list), you’re checking it twice (to make sure no one is on there who will betray you), you’re trimming the tree, and you’re laying out the perfect outfit for those Christmas dinner pictures. So when you’re getting ready to post, make sure your caption will warm their hearts and fill their belly with laughs the same way our favourite holiday does. It is the most wonderful time of year, filled with snow angels, Santas and festivities. Happy holidays are just around the corner!
