Relatable Memes That Will Help You Get Through Awkward Family Interactions on Thanksgiving

Sometimes hanging with your family can be stressful. That’s why we’ve compiled some of our favorite Thanksgiving clapback memes to help you get through the holiday season (and maybe even do a little laughing while you’re at it).

We get it — you’ve been spending months indoors and want to make the perfect meal for your socially distanced dinner party, but with all that excitement also comes the need to relax. After spending hours in the kitchen planning and preparing the ultimate Thanksgiving Day menu, remember it’s A-OK to take a few minutes to relax. And although it’s always nice to see (a few) family and friends, when you get your loved ones in the same room together, things can get pretty chaotic pretty quickly.

To keep calm in the days leading up to November 26, take a look through these Thanksgiving Day memes. You’ll be cracking up so much, you’ll burn enough calories to warrant a *third* piece of pumpkin pie. No, that’s not a scientific fact, but hey, we’re allowed to treat ourselves as 2020 finally comes to a close, right?

In fact, it’s a good idea to save these on your phone in anticipation of Turkey Day. That way, if things start to get heated at the dinner table, you can read some Thanksgiving jokes aloud to quickly change the subject and get your guests giggling.

Oh, and another tip? Perhaps change things up in the food department. According to chef/model/and all-around cool human, Chrissy Teigen, “Screw turkey. Turkey sucks. Turkey is gross!” she once told InStyle. “I do two whole roasted chickens because chicken is so much better and you can still get a great gravy out of it. I just really feel like people feel like they’re forced to eat turkey, and nobody really enjoys it. Surprise everyone. Serve them chicken, and they’ll be much happier.”

So there you have it! Keep scrolling for some of our favorite Thanksgiving clapback memes, and be hella thankful 2020 is coming to an end.
