15 Thanksgiving Memes to Help Make Turkey Season Feel Bright

meme definition

What is a meme?

Merriam Webster’s Dictonary defines a meme as, “an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture” or “ an amusing or interesting item (such as a captioned picture or video) or genre of items that is spread widely online especially through social media.”

Basically, a meme is a form of reference humor using captioned pictures and short videos. Memes are generally found online and on social media platforms.

The Thanksgiving holiday is largely based around getting together with lots of relatives and being grateful for family and loved ones. But sometimes family members can be difficult to be around, causing drama and stress during these big family get togethers. Relatives aside, Thanksgiving can also be stressful because of all there is to do! There’s so much cooking and cleaning involved in this kitchen and food centric holiday.

Whether you need a break from people or from the dishes some well deserved meme scrolling can really get you laughing and ease tension. And who knows! Maybe you’ll be able to share a meme or two.

There are a lot of article options out there when you want some holiday themed memes to laugh at.

Then look no further. Scroll our favorites list of Thanksgiving memes and enjoy!

1. Early Christmas Ads are the WORST!

Posting your Thanksgiving roast turkey on Instagram may seem like a great idea, but when you get your many posts that day confused, it can leave your followers feeling a little worried for your dog.




















5. Thanksgiving Ruins Your Diet

There’s kind of no avoiding it. Thanksgiving can really put a wrench in your dieting and health goals. But it’s ok! You can get back up on your feet for a couple more weeks before Christmas rolls around to ruin your diet all over again.

6. Thanksgiving with Darth Vader

Have you ever wondered what thanksgiving might be like at Darth Vader’s house? Neither have I! But now we know I guess.

7. Batman after Thanksgiving Dinner

Everybody puts on a few pounds after feasting on Thanksgiving dinner, even Batman! Though it probably makes Batman look a lot cooler than it makes us look.

The guy checking out another girl, otherwise known as the distracted boyfriend meme is a classic and is made even more funny when you see him actually avoiding distraction. I guess we all don’t like to notice the pile of dirty dishes in the sink after Thanksgiving, even distractable boyfriends.
